Dead iMac G4 Music Recovery Narre Warren North
Workshop Job – Non-booting iMac G4 Desktop
The customer requested to recover his music files as much as possible when he brought over his non-booting iMac G4.
The dead computer had been used solely as a media player for music only. Great if it can be fixed, otherwise please recover as much of the music files as possible.
Push the power button, nothing, no light no noise.
Tried resetting it, still no joy.
Connected another power supply, no movement.
Highly likely a motherboard problem although no visual clues i.e. blown caps or the likes.
Not worth trying to fix this any further due to the value and purpose of the system.
Remove the HDD caddy. Two PATA drives. Connect them to one of the data recovery PCs. First drive is readily accessible but completely empty.
Second one presents a lot of bad sectors. Retrieval of the music files is going to require preparing the drive accordingly.
After processing for access, this turns out to be the system drive with all the user account folders. Recovery of the music files will now be possible indeed. As expected all other user folders are empty, so there is no other type of files to worry about.
Recover and extract the music files successfully to a safe recovery drive. All the files are integral so they should be in perfect state and playable. Test play samples, 100% good.
The customer supplied a transfer drive, appropriately format it for access by Mac OS. Copy over the recovered music folders and files.
Yes, no matter what kind of data are important to you, we can help you recover them when bad luck strikes.
