True about the cost, that's why I was trying to find a person here/locally that would try and give it a shot. I have 2 guys lined up to check it out, but haven't set up a time to meet. The importance of the data is great, but I'm also not going to shell out more money than what my computers worth. We have tons of film pictures we took of the little one, so it's no biggy if I get it recovered or not. I also have a few personal MP3's I'd like to recover.
