Has it ever worked? Is this a new install of the OS?

that is a hardware failure, unfortunately when it ahppens you have to format the drive. but still you can take your frive and plug it in another computer to see if you can save your staffs. try to run one error checking on your drive. if nothing works then you ahve to format it again. how? whit the windows xp cd when you boot up you computer from the cd.

so you've tried formatting in Windows but not DOS? maybe use your Win2K CD to format the drive - I still use FAT32 on my 40 gig drive for compatibility
