Hi,

Bought an external HD (Toshiba) which has been working fine up to now. Tried plugging in recently however I cannot read any of the data, the device is recognised and displays approx 35 GB in use, but when I go into the drive, no data appears at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

try something like partition magic and see if you can view the data through this, if the datas not that important format the drive and try copying a file over then back

Cheers 4 advice, will try that. I have already tried copying & retrieving new files to & from it, which works fine. I just cannot see the remaining data. Will let you know how I get on

i had the same prob. i think it was caused by the power being turn off while the drive was in use, i recovered some off the data(pictures mainly) with a data recovery software, but i really can't remember what one i used.

Can't see whats wrong with the zip; perhaps you tried the other file.

Here's the zip again.
