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,

SOURCE: My DEll PC runnig XP SP3 cannot
Yes the drive is compatible with XP. I have seen a slightly higher than normal # of problems with their 1TB models so this may just be a batch problem. My suggestion if there's nothing crucial on the drive is to return it an purchase a different brand.
If it's not returnable you'll have to settle for asking Buffalo for a replacement. If there's crucial data on it you will need the help of a recovery pro. In that case, comment back with your Country, State and City and I will point you to a nearby Recovery facility.
Hope this helps FixYa,

Some of the externals have mapping issues in Windows. Although the TB shows in devices, you may need to remap it (right click on My Computer for mapping options) and in some cases, changing the drive letter will fix your problem. There's really no 1 definitive solution for these. If you're unable to fix the problem by remapping or changing the drive letter, you can partition the drive to recover your data. As far as the slow transfer rate goes, almost all externals are formatted in FAT. This has issues of its own with safely removing devices and slow transfer rates. I prefer to format my externals and flash drives in NTSF for more reliability. Best of luck.

If you're using windows XP then go to start > control panel > administrative tools > computer management > disk management. See if the disk is showing up there but hasn't been allocated a drive letter, if it hasn't then right click on that drive and press "assign drive letter". Be sure to do it to the right one, you could quite easily change another drive's letter by accident otherwise.

Sounds like you're running a stripe array which is great for performance but lacks any resiliency at all to this type of shutdown.
If there's no data on the drive which you need you should be able to simply reformat the drive using the buffalo utility that came with it(may require a pc).
If you have data on the drive which you need recovered you will need the help of a data recovery pro and Disk Warrior and other simple data recovery programs simply don't have the capability to recover complex drives.
If this is the case you can submit the drive to www.armor-it.com for a cost effective recovery, or reply back with your location(Country, State and City) if you need a rapid recovery and I can refer you to someone in your area.
