Can anyone tell me how to put the rescue img to a new drive so I can try the hacking without messing the original HDs?
I have succesfully restored my MyBook World with a new WD 500Gb HD since the last had a Head Crash and died a horrible death. If you follow the procedure in the Rescue Procedure it should work. Even the partition table in this method only has 3 partitions and heaps of free space. It should work on any hard drive. I'll give it a try sometime with my old 160Gb drive and see if it'll work. But I'm affraid it won't be any time soon due to a busy shedule. In short, go for it with a different hard drive and let us know :-)
