Thank you for your reply chscag!

Ok, since I posted this morning, I had my IT guy at work look at my external hd. he was able to get it to mount to my desktop at work after running Disk Warrior with it. I am going to take home a MacBook pro from work and use it in Target Disk Mode to try to get the remaining data from my iMac at home.

If that works, I am going to boot from my Leopard install DVDs instead of my Install CDs that came with my iMac (which was Tiger) and check my drive.

Does that sound right? And how will I know if my internal drive is defective? If it's not defective, what would be my next step?

I thought that taking it to the Genius bar would be expensive and would much prefer to fix this myself, if you are willing to help
