Have got a SATA 250 gb drive. All of a sudden the above error meessage appears. Cant get access to the drive (where My Docs r) ans XP wont boot up if drive is connected. Had to disconnect drive so PC will boot up. IS ALL MY DATA LOST in this drive, or can I retrieve some of it. It was partitioned into 3 drives. Any advice or help would be appreciated..

Hi Stalion - thankx for replying.Bit more info - Sata drive is not my main HDD, it was working fine, then I have a power problem on another drive, and after i got this fixd the error 'DISC FAILED, disc location ,controller 0, Channel 0, master.' occurred. If I boot up without the drive connected (power or red sata cable), then plug the other cable in, I get the above error message. Is my data all lost, or is it a power failure ? In COMPUTER MANAGEMENT in ADMIN, there is no sign of the drive, but in Device Manager(disk drives), it recognises it but with errors - Cheers
