So my mom wanted me to burn her a few cds so I said ok. Was using iTunes and got the first one done no problem. Tried to do the 2nd and it kept hanging up so I restarted the computer and tried again. Same thing, tried to shut down iTunes but it wouldnt go, so I hit the drive with the paper clip. The disc start spinning around all crazy inside the drive so I shut it down. Go to restart and I get the error 3rd Master Hard Disk Error. I read up on this and it suggest using recovery console. I am there right now but am not sure what to do next. I am running XP with SP2 If I remember correct. The HDD is a Seagate 500gb with just one partition I use for the OS and programs and the the other for storage. Keeps saying at the error screen something about a IDE drive but everything I got is all SATA (unless its refering to it being SATA setup as IDE which is how its set) so I am not sure what is up with that. Any advice/info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
