    try not to panic while you grab your sh!t together and let everyone know what a disappointment you are; you may be able to walk away without a scratch but this usually depends on the crowd.

    1) I always have my backup / duplicate HD with me
    2) I always carry my CDs as well, for any outrageous situation that involves two hard drive's f.ucking up (and the laptop!)

    Always make sure you have backups of your hard drive; not just one but a couple just in case another one breaks or if any get stolen.

    I have a few good cds and singles on my laptop itself, if the hard drive fails, I'll run music off of the laptop while I try to figure out what my next step will be. A good thing to do is always back up your backup to have a duplicate HDD copy... that or blame the venue's power grid :p

    You should try keeping a flash drive with some songs from different genre.
