Do this: from the desktop go to >Start>Run and then type in cmd. That will take you to the command promt. When you get there C: type in chkdsk D: /p this wll make XP see if it can fix the files on your disk. Then try Chkdsk D: /r and try to repair the bad sectors. Let me know what happens. Here is some reading material for you: http://www.ss64.com/nt/chkdsk.html

It is a strong possibility that the drive is dead. Does the drive Icon show up in "my computer"?

What kind of files are they? Are you sure you can access them, or can you just see them on the drive?
