i've got a 200gb hdd in a gentoo box formatted with rfs.. i've had it in there about 6 months and use it to store large video files.. i've never had any problems until the last couple days, now trying to mount it i get 'mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1, or too many mounted file systems'  fsck gives me 'bread: Cannot read the block (16): (Input/output error).

i have absolutely no idea what to do from here, and would really like to not lose any data stored on that disk.. what should i do?!
