Default Missing: HDD Partition

Something wrong with my HDD, it's the primary slave one, MAXTOR 80 GB DiamondMAx Plus 9.
When it's booting up, on the display it didn't identify itself as MAXTOR, but "EAGPTR 6Q000D0QAR41BWO". And after it finished loading and finally in the Windows mode (I use XP), when i try to explore, the partition in that HDD wasn't there. And then i switch to Win98, the same thing happened.
Is that what called by bad sector? Is that Physical kind or not? Is there any way that i can recover my files in that HDD? Coz, in that HDD, many important files are there. IF i can recover the files, which software i could use?

maxtor drives suck for this reason. Try using a program called easy data recovery.

In your situation I would rather try Active@ partition recovery utility to restore partitions. It helped me before so I'm pretty sure that should help you too.
