Is it possible to replace the motor in a disk if it was gone and still
I don't think it is the motor. I'm just kinda curious.

Of course, if you're not upto paying big bucks for by the megabyte data
recovery you could always try the good old methods of belting the drive
with something like the back of a screw driver, putting it in the freezer
for awhile etc. I'd only do it as a last resort thou..
Reminds me of the time my old 2Gb quantum's heads went bananas, i did the
old belt the drive to revive it for a few hours trick but it went horribly
wrong and i ended up smashing the drive to bits with a hammer... Those were
the good old days (despite the fact i lost 3 years worth of coding work).
