    Initialize Hard drive

    Hi all,
    A friend of mine asked me if I can help him get his laptop back into working order.
    It is a Samsung model NP740U3L
    When I turn it on, after about a minute, it tells me:
    All boot option tried
    Press F4 for repair
    After pressing F4 it comes back to the same screen as above.
    So I booted with macrium and selected fix boot problem. Then I noticed that there was no drive listed.
    Then I clicked on “Command prompt” and entered disk part and after few moments I saw that the drive was unallocated. After a quick surge I found out that the drive was not initialized.
    So I took it out of the laptop and attached it to my desktop and clicked on disk management and was told that it needed to be initialized and selected MBR. After a few seconds I get a popup telling me:
    Data error cyclic redundancy check
    It will not initialize.
    Anything else I can try to get this drive back?
    There are pictures and Documents on it that he would like to keep, is there a way to get them off?
    Thanks for any help

    Hi you could try a data recovery software but the disk might need to be initialize first but seems like it won't let you. but could try anyways Hard Drive Data Recovery Software. Free Download Disk Data Recovery Tool - EaseUS(R) Data Recovery Wizard Professional
