Hi I have a 2tb ext hard drive which was working fine on my soniq tv. Somehow the tv formatted/reformatted the hard drive and now none of the files work.. can't even read any of the file headings as they...

I have to ask, why would you connect a Computer hard drive to a television?

Remove the hard from the television and connect it to a computer. The hard drive hasn't been reformatted, because you can see the folders. If it reformatted it would be blank. With the hard drive in a hard drive enclosure and connected to a computer, you can try and read the data and find out why the filenames were altered and bring them back. I am guessing the file associations have been lost, or the file extension has been altered. There is also Undelete software you can use as well as diagnostic software.

You will have to take the drive off, put it on an external hdd enclosure with a usb connection, connect it to a working computer, scan it for viruses and spyware, copy all of your data to another device (i.e. hdd, flashdisk, cd, etc). Then, reinstall the hd back on to the original computer and turn it on. If it works it you've solved your problem. If it doesn't then reformat your hdd, reinstall your operating system, programs, and data.
Time consuming? yes but it works.

The drive may have encountered a safe power off problem. There are several things to try. In My Computer, click on Tools/Map Network Drive and see if you're able to assign the external drive a new letter. If successful, you should be all set, if not the drive may need to be reformatted. Prior to reformatting, you can recover your data. Click on the link below:
Date Recovery this link is a freeware program that is designed to recover lost data or data not recognized by your computer. Once installed, you should see the external drive and be able to recover the data. Once all the data is recovered, you are free to reformat the drive to make it recognizable by your machine again. Best of luck.

I deleted date from Olympus VN-4100PC

When the Digital Wave Player application copies the files to yourcomputer, the default location is under My Documents>Digital WavePlayer>Message. There, you will see FolderA, FolderB, etc. +Recording & Schedule folders.

If the files are not there, use a file recovery application, such as PhotoRec to recover the deleted files.
