Is this a hard drive? I think you need to reformat it unfortunately. Back up all your data soon though in case it gets worse.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIII - do you ever find it a ***** getting the right number of I's when you enter your username to log in?

unfortunately I cant help you with your question though as i have never had this problem. Can you still boot?
if not you could try chucking it into another machine and see if you can recover anything that way or try recovering with your windows disks.

A quick google revealed that a lot of people have this problem with CD/DVD drives, so you may well find your data is still safely on the disk - it may be a case of updating various drivers, which i apprechiate is going to be a bit tricky if you cannot boot
