Hard disk in RAW format.

Dear Sirs,

I've unistalled my GEforce 6600 GT drivers and when I restart the PC my Hard Disk #2 doesn't work. The problem is that the HDD needs to be formatted... and in those HDD I've all my documents: infact, for security, I have redirect my C:documents to D:documents path. Without words...

check your cabling and reseat your GEforce..

Reinstall the drivers..as it may contain chipset drivers that make your drive work.

Thank you but I've tried to install HDD on another PC and the partition can not be found. Probably the problem is on MBR or in format: infact when I try to enter HDD it ask me to be formatted ( displayed format RAW).

Try downloading an 'undelete' program. These applications are designed to scan the actual drive's data rather than its TOC. This should allow you to 'restore' data off that drive. I strongly recommend you save what you need off it and then format it. Its obviously become very corrupt.

A few examples of undelete programs are:

Hope these help

How old is your harddrive? I had a problem last year with a brand new external HD that I used to store my music files (about 30GB). After copying them I tried to play a few- most seemed to be half of one song and bits of another!!! After resetting, I was prompted to format and when I checked the HD it was in RAW format. I reformatted and everything seemed ok for about a week, then everything became jumbled again, then HD was reporting RAW format.....and I lost all my tunes!! Tried several recovery progs but no joy- turned out to be a defective HD. Hope you have better luck with recovery of your data.
