[mythtv-users] Help with a semi-busted hard drive (with all my recordings)

So I was making some changes in my mythbox today, and I really screwed up.  I 
broke a surface mount capacitor on one of my hard drives.  I tried to 
resolder it back on, but it ended up breaking apart a bit.  This drive is 
(was?) part of an lvm group that has all our recordings, music, and video on 

The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, 200Gb, model ST32000822A.  Pictures 
detailing the damage are at http://robotics.caltech.edu/~klk/drive/

I figure alot of people on this list have this drive.  If anyone who has one 
of these drives could somehow measure the capacitor I would be greatly 
indebted to you.  At the very least, I would buy you many beers if we ever 
met :-)

Thanks for any help.
