no the disk is in a raw format. you need to format it NTFS before you can use it. sorry to say but there is now nothing on the drive, you might beable to try booting off of a linux live cd and seeing if the files are still on there, but i doubt it.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

Lesson learned. Never mess with a hard drive containing data you care about unless you have a valid backup.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
