Help! External Maxtor HD says corrupt

  Ive 23:31 19 Sep 2006

When you double click the drive it says J:\ is not accesible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.How can I recover my 189gig of mp3 music. Is there any software that can read a corrupted drive or recover data.

Can you see the drive in "My Computer"?????

  Ive 00:08 20 Sep 2006

Yes I can

Right click the drive\Properties tick the box to fix faults in Check disc and run it

When I check the box and click start, chekdisc just dissapears and nothing happens.Buy the way I can here the drive spin up when I turn it on.

After you try Check Disc, try a reboot with the disc connected and switched on. It may start check when you reboot
