For a step by step, life is busy and it's hard to take the time to do the reading necessary to fix things like this myself.

comment Corrupted MBR, MBR repair does not recognise
I already tested the drives cable and the connector to the external via a 80 gig sata that I tore out of a old laptop somebody was tossing just for that purpose. The cables and connector are fine I can say that for sure. What bothers me the the most, is as stated but you didn't say anything about was MBR Recover didn't even see the drive at all. Honestly I just want to get the drive working once again, 500 gigs is a lot of space I'd hate to lose the use of. I'm aware the MBR is always there, I just want to repair it somehow to get the drive working once again. In other words I'm looking

comment Corrupted MBR, MBR repair does not recognise
Ok here's the thing I just want to get the drive usable again. I don't mind wiping out the partition table I know that can be replaced. So if I was somehow able to copy and replace the corrupt MBR with the one from the other drive I could at least make it usable again correct? Remember the drive isn't even recognized on MBR repair and only half the time on gparted so I'm not even sure how I would go about doing that, I will test out other software to see if I can with it. Any more advice would be very helpful.

comment Partitions; Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Windows, you name it, how do I do it?
That was just the start, and the thing is, windows didn't detect the other ntfs partitions either. Here I put the links to the questions with what happened, just give them a skim for me if you would, I'm lost atm and well you're not the only one a bit busy atm as well. askubuntu.com/questions/127074/… askubuntu.com/questions/127306/mbr-repair-any-help-is-welcome

comment Partitions; Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Windows, you name it, how do I do it?
Thank you for the reply, even if a bit later. I already figured out everything about the extended partition and logical drives, but then I ran into a slight error. I booted into windows to check to make sure the partitions were all working right then found only 2 to show up, the rest showed as raw. So I decided to go back into gparted and start from scratch again with a new partition table. And well if you would be kind enough to look at my other questions posted, it would save a lot of typing and reading.

comment Gparted can't create partition table
It was working fine till now, any it's the only partitioning software that has worked well for me before. If you know of a better partitioning software, I'll try it out.
