    I am surprised that dd can not do what the other apps cud not either. DD is about as low as it gets. For the present I am stumped ... that trying to write to the MBR was my last possible solution I might have had.....

    As and when I have time tomorrow, will see what else I can come up with (if for nothing else for future reference!) Do not know what else to say but get ready to replace that disk.

    CU tomorrow ?..............BDQ

    I have had another thought... KillDisk! .. I have used it in the past and it is both informative and powerful ! But, it is not native to Ubuntu; You would have to download the .iso and burn to cd disk... here is the link if you want to devote more time and effort to this enterprise (it has been a learning experience, no ?)
    http://soft.udm4.com/downloading/act...l_disk_ubuntu/

    There is lots of helps/and guides for this program on the net!
    It is a useful tool to have in your arsenal !

    I hope this helps too <===BDQ

    I will try using kill disk when i get home from work tonigh. I have deff learned alot, i love messing around with computers and rooting cell phones. I may not know alot but to me, trying to get them running again is more fun to me then having a working computer. I love the challenge! Thanks for all the help, cheers mate...
