Rod thanks for all your help.
Based on the situation i have to give up !
i'll look for a lower price Recovery fee ,and if i didn't find a
resonable one i'll freeze the drive,i got this idea from my beloved
8052.comforum to freeze the drive and try if it works if intrested go
and if it doesn't worked i'll try to open the HDD seal and look for a
DIY repairable damage hopefully in a clean room.

Yeah, I'd go that route myself in that situation.

Yeah, worth a try, make sure you put it in a plastic bag tho.

Yeah, I've suggested people try freezing quite a bit myself.

Its a joke. Look up the word necrophilia in the dictionary.
The "She's dead, Jim" comes from one of the movies, Star Trek

Yup, above your comprehension.
16383 is the maximum supported number for Cylinders
with a 16H/63S translation on the physical interface.

So does the 79656*16*63.
The 79656 is a purely cosmetic number for displaying purposes only,
(re)calculated from the 80293332 LBA number, divided by 16*63.
It doesn't exist anywhere else other than is apps that stupidly insist
on using CHS values beyond the 8GB CHS limit .

So are the 'Cylinders per Drive' and 'Heads per Cylinder' values,
