Thank you Rich M!

My HDD is an addition; I'm not talking about a drive containing an OS! It has just 60 GB of songs. I swapped it twice or 3 times before and it worked...

It is when I put it back into the original machine that nothing could be seen. A window pops up asking for a formatting!

oohh yuck thats not good...just be sure you dont format it just yet. Give this tool a shot and see if it can recover items for you. I have used it in the past and had some good luck with it..espicailly for being free
