Default Hard Drive not Readable

Something happened last night with my second hard drive where I have plenty of music.When windows started they said something about corrupted files on the drive and scandisk started.Then it deleted some files as I saw and when I entered windows whenever I try to open the drive it says that the disk is unreadable or the files might be corrupted.

Can I do something to save my 300GB of music?

Sounds like a virus. Scan your system, let us know if you try that. Come back here later, there are a lot of smart people here, who know much more than I do.

Scan the drive for viruses if it'll let you. RERUN scandisk and let it fix any errors.

I'd try mirroring that drive to another 300gb drive asap before you lose everything.
