@Paul - swapping the logic board is going to be a last resort. I want to try to solve this as much as possible without doing that kind of 'sugery' ;) .. still, thanks - may have to do it anyway.

"View the data" means I can view all files and directories on the hard disk - I just can't read them from disk nor copy them to another disk.

Thanks - noted. Going to try this. I'm expecting this to take on the order of eight hours or so. How long was yours time? Additionally, if it bypasses bad sectors, I imagine certain files will likely be corrupt, correct?

Unfortunately, when I run chkdsk I get an error message regarding 'RAW' file system. I've updated the question to note this, too.

That thought crossed my mind, but the drive is NTFS, IIRC. At any rate, once I get the disk back from the data recovery center, I'll give this a try.

I'll check this out as soon as I get a chance - I don't wanna leave your answer unaccepted, I've just not had time to revisit it yet.

Never actually worked with any of the videos on my Flip. "ERROR OCCURRED" every time regardless of the settings I've selected.
