When a disk says its corrupted or unreadable it can ne 2 things 1.) The disk is physically faulty. or 2.) The file system is corrupted. Well check to se if its the file system by doing this: 1.) Go to Start->Run 2.)Type cmd and press enter 3.) (with the drive plugged in)Type chkdsk f: /f /r and press enter It should attempt to check the file system and fix problems if it can. If the utility doesn't start at all or stops half way and says it cannot continue then the problem might be with the drive itself. In that case you might need to acquire sofware to retrieve the data. GetBack Data NTFS works pretty good. If that is the case, You can always take it to a data recovery expert if the data is very important. And if the problem is with the drive, i would really consider getting another one! Good Luck Regards, Armando

I connect my apello m300 to laptop.but show this error in that time."The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" why show this messege

Compare the "corrupted message" to a child with a pen writing all over the "table of contents" of a book. Some of the entries in that table of contents have become unreadable.

So, the "logical-integrity" of the disk-drive has been compromised, either by a software error (Windows writing files to the wrong place on the disk-drive) or by a hardware (Windows tried to write files to the correct place, but that part of the disk-drive cannot reliably be accurately recorded).

D:/ is not accessible. Disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.

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.

The hard disk is not detected, inaccessible or unreadable because of possible hardware failure, corruption and/ or I/O errors.

To troubleshoot this issue, restart the computer or rescan the disk to try and return the disk to Online

To rescan the disk, open Computer Management, and then click status. Disk Management. On the Action menu, click Rescan Disks.

Just make sure ide cable is fixed properly to the hard drive when scanning.

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

Dear,
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,
Rakesh Kumar
