Yes yes I know, first post and he's on the ponce already.

Was recommended this site by a friend as he knows I'm struggling here!

My iMac broke recently with a DVD in the drive - I sent it off to be looked at assuming they would replace the DVD writer.

They have contacted me today saying it is in fact a faulty "logic board".

It's going to cost me *winces* 450 to get it fixed.

This is all well and good but I just want to confirm (because they don't seem to be able to!) that the hard drive should be unaffected?

I have loads of work and iPod tunes I stupidly never got around to backing up and can't replace.

If it's unaffected I will tell them to go ahead with it, otherwise I may just let it die as it's too much money for a clean system!!

Any advice would be HUGELY appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks

They can never guarantee the hard drive won't be wiped when it is taken in for service. You should always backup....
