:evil: Ok, this may take a bit of explaining...

I was getting a few errors from my old HDD, but i was just ignoring them.. cause i knew i was going to get a new hdd soon.. ok then one day i was just playing a game and my whole computer shut down... it loaded back up and came to the windows blue screen of death and had an error saying "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"

i put the XP PRO cd in and tried to do a boot recovery and scan disk /r, but neither would work, the scan disk would get to about 65% and then just stop saying there were errors that couldnt be fixed...

Ive just bought a new 160gig hdd, and put it in as the master, and installed XP onto that, and have got the old stuffed HDD in as a slave.. but now in windows when i click on the D: it says

D:\ is not accessible
The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

So, yeah DAMN!!! ive got like 40 gig of mp3s and important emails and all sorts on there that i really need to get back!!
can anyone help me!? :cry: :cry:

by boot recovery do you mean you ran FIXBOOT from the recovery console?, if not thats where i would start. pop in the XP CD, go to the recovery console and just type in FIXBOOT.

remove your harddisk and install it in another machine-put it as slave. try and see if you can access it. if you cant-cant help you! :idea: otherwise, you can use a recovery tool like from System Works, try using this. Also try running integrity check on that HDD to see if all folders are damaged. ;)
