Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8mb HD FAILED 2nd Week

My Brand New Maxtor Diamond Max Plus 8mb 80gig Hard drive, failed me on exactly the 14th day after I bought it. Fortunally my important data is on my trusty IBM 120Gxp. I installed it formatted it and exactly 14 days after, it won't even boot. I'm trying to reformat it, and it just stops at 65%. Should have gone with the WD Special Edition instead.


Is there anyway I can create a boot CD or something to get some data off the dead drive?
