Question about Computers & Internet
Hello there, David, did Raymond ever get you taken care of? I would be very careful since it sounds like he may have emailed you pirated / stolen software. There has never been a free version of spinrite so for him to email it to you is not legal.
There may be a trial version of the software out there, but that will not accomplish what it is you are trying to do. It sounds like the file system header information on the drive has become corrupted. You say that linux isn't even seeing the device at all? When you go to a terminal, go to /dev/disk/by-uuid, do a ls -la in the directory, does it not see the drive here? It definitely should.
Is the device still listed in your fstab?

My advise is to go online at linux and get a version of the operating system ...for free ( just download it )
look for the version that is able to boot a system from the CD (bootable version ) You will find it probably as an Image file ...I dontknow exactly ...what I know for sure is that there are availableversions that will allow you to use linux directly from a cd...if Imade myself clear....after you had acces on your files just back 'em up...or copy them on another hard disk ( external) until you reinstalland verify to see what exactly went wrong ....this is the cheapersolution you will ever get ...infact I bet it will cost you just ablank cd ..and the future power bill ...Good luck !
ps this is a small linux that will work from cd ..(ISO file )

It's likely that your map (data) got corrupted. You can recover by restoring your back-up copy of the map (that you'd previously done via TomTom HOME on your computer).
If you don't have a back-up copy, try using your computer's disk check utility to fix the file system and recover data (from the storage media on your GPS device). Just connect the GPS to your computer, no need to use TomTom HOME, just use the Properties tab and use the Tools to run a disk check (assuming you're using Windows).
If that doesn't work, you may want to purchase & download and install the latest copy of the map from the TomTom website (via HOME).
