Reinstall and select the Full Format in the process. If the problem reappears the disk is malfunctioning due to hardware faults - it's dead, replace it.

You may have simply 'cooked' the DVD drive and the motherboard on it fried. Replacement drives start at 20 quid for a desktop and 30 quid for a laptop. It's held in with 1 screw if a laptop. Remove the drive, get the model number and replace it.

E:\ is not accessible The disk structure is

This is usually an external drive - if you are trying to run from a cd/dvd, make sure you are selecting the correct drive. If you are operating from a "jump" drive, also known as a "flash" drive, this is usually caused by removing the external drive while it is being used (when files are currenlty accessed) and the drive file has not been closed before removing or shutting down the computer. Unfortunately, this is unrecoverable at this point, and you will possibly need to format the drive (external, not internal hard drive) - first, however with the drive inserted, go to the "computer" file (under start menu) and right click on the drive - select "safely remove". This may then allow you to access the drive again. You may need to take it out of the port, then reinsert it so the computer will re-detect the files. If this does not work, you will then need to format the external drive.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Cannot access disk information


Yes we can save you :D

First off though, with the combination of a virus and a formatted drive I will only recommend that you send it to a pro. Too many things that could go wrong and any of the files that are currently recoverable could be destroyed trying some of the usual testing methods.

Comment back with your region and city and I will find an appropriate pro for you to contact.

My external hard drive is corrupt, i want my data back.

Data can be recover but the drive must be accessible by OS. As you write windows vista says drive is not accessible and that the disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.Do one thing try the same drive at another PC. If it run on that PC copy the data to that PC. Now format the drive and paste the same data back to your drive. But, if same thing happend then there are chances of fault in the driveand for this you shuld visit to the service cetre but, they are not responsible for the data.

Thanks & regards,

Freecom network drive corrupted

Sounds like it needs re-formating.

You might try>

Look through there to see if they have a utility that can sort the problem out....
Or a FAQ section where there might be a bit of help with the problem...

These drives need to be in open air or they can overheat and stop working.

Right click on the F:\ ,click format.

Look to see if the details of the drive are in the window.

Capacity ? 150gb ? or something close.
File system NFTS ?

If these details are there you can format the disk again.
