Disk drive failure

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My PowerBook isn't booting up, just stuck on the spinning disc. I've tried repairing from the install disc, but I get the messages:

Invalid key length
Volume check failed
Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.

Is there anything else I can try to rescue the disk?

1) Take your PowerBook to Apple's technical department,
2) pray it is 'just' your disk and not the I/O port on the motherboard, and
3) pray you have a good backup.

Good luck.

DiskWarrior is supposed to be able to repair that issue:

Also, I would try prosoft's data rescue II, or steve gibson's, spinrite if you need to get data recovered.
