My hard disk was working fine. Then suddenly after moving it from another room (it is a laptop).
I did what I found suggested as I feel the HD is a now dead but?? may be I can retrieve some files?
Here's the terminal output:
ronald@ronald-Latitude-D505:~$ dmesg | tail [14443.015575] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Unhandled sense code [14443.015582] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Result: hostbyte=DID_ERROR driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE [14443.015589] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Sense Key : Hardware Error [current] [14443.015596] Info fld=0x0 [14443.015599] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Add.

What does anyone suggest? I read this by installing a new HD and then connecting the "broken" one via a USB as an ext drive.
