My MBWE stopped working yesterday. The bottom light is the only one on. I figured something crashed on it. I popped it open and tried plugging it in to a machine with only that and an external attached through USB. For whatever reason (32bit or 64bit), I can't seem to get the Ubuntu Live CD running. When I am checking the screen during the loading, it comes up with a S.M.A.R.T. error on the WD drive. It reads "BAD, backup and replace".
So far, I am still up against a wall and cannot figure this out. Any suggestions on what I can do? I don't care if I ultimately lose the drive, I just want to be able to plug it back in for a short period of time and get the files off it.
