Repairing removable drive.

I have an pretty much full 80gig removable hd which has managed to have itself a brainfart.  E: is now inaccessible and showing as RAW. I've run PCInspector file recovery - they're all still there and  those i've recovered seem fine.  Cant say as I'm much of a boffin when it comes to the techy stuff, but I'm guessing its either the boot sector thats corrupt or something screwed in my registry.  So, before I spend my last few squid on an artic load of cd's or another drive (my main hd is pitifully tiny!)  is there a way of repairing this without having to transfer it all?

Would be eternally grateful for any help. Cheers  :o)

When drives begin to lose data or become inaccessable, it's an indication that you should replace the unit.  Doing otherwise is just taking unnecessary chances.  Consider yourself lucky - at least you were able to get data back.  Most people think drives work reliably for as long as their life, but it's not true.

Appreciated Celandor - but I am inclined to think though that this error is the result of running a program to retrieve data from an unformatted sram card.

Ok, but I would keep an eye on it and note if errors continue.
