Or you could try downloading it. If you own the game, this shouldn't be a problem.

Oh, alright. You sounded like ripping the music was some effort - and your smilie didn't exactely disagree with that. ;-)

that my old 80Gb harddrive is officially dead.

That sounds quite disturbing, what causes that to happen? just old age?

a small connection between an IDE pin and the hardrive broke off, so now there is a little piece of metal that lifts up when i plug it in. a litlle bit of solder would fix it,but it would have to be *really* accurate soldering otherwise the whole thing would be totally useless.

i considered drastic actions such as finding a little bit of metal to put under it so that the connection is complete but it seems very risky :?

does anyone have any suggestions as to ways i can save my beloved 80GB harddrive?

(i know this should be in general discussions, but the thread is already here lol)

unless you know someone thats "VERY ADEPT" at soldering :wink: and has a cleanroom in his house :? ,your "beloved 80 GB Hard Drive" is Kaput and fubared out
:( ,sorry mate, thats partly the reason i'm backing up all my stuff that i have on my drives,on DVD ROMS a.s.a.p. either that or get myself a removable drive that i can just put neatly aside,in case anything happens,God forbid

How exactly do you rip the music off the DVD by the way? I shoved the disc in my comp's dvd-rw drive and all the files are in some dodgy format. Is there a program to convert them??

you need a .wad extractor i think...

or use the search button for the forums - i never knew it existed till last week.
