I Got the Pictures!
I finally got around to putting the dying hard drive into a USB external kit (thanks for the idea, Cory!). I plugged it in, not having a lot of hope. Well, the drive made horrible clicking noises, but...I was able to find the pictures on the hard drive, and I was able to get them on my laptop! Now I have to burn them to CD, but this is a huge relief. And it looks like I did this just in the nick of time - now the drive isn't doing a damn thing :). There was some other stuff on the drive I wanted to pull off of it (for tax season) but that's really not a big deal. The pictures were the primary thing, and I've been able to retrieve them. Yes!
