Journal MoneyT's Journal: Showdown Round 1

Hard Crash in Windows

Situation: Inserted a damaged CD-R into the computer in hopes of recovering data. The only programs running were Bit Torrents. Computer locked up, no blue screen. No response at all from any input.

Repeatable: Yes

Conclusion: Hard crash in windows, fault of windows unable to properly handle bad disk

Performance on other computer: The mac when given the disk popped up a dialouge saying the disk was unreadable and asking if I wanted to eject or ignore the disk.
