Windows Vista is fine, follow this HowTo http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...41f811033.mspx, but instead on your C: drive, do it on your external drive...

WOW..could it had really been that simple. 3 seconds and my drive was checked for file-system errors and poof!!! everything is back to normal. THANK YOU VERY MUCH lhorace for taking your time and helping me out like you did. I feel like i owe you an apology for wasting your time; seeing as the problem was such an easy fix. To my defense, i am a beginner at this linux thing. Thanks again almighty lhorace lol no seriously tho... you really made my day

Hey, here at LQ, someone took the time and help me out, I'm just returning the favour... Your totally welcome, now you've gain allot more then you have before... I think the reason the file system got corrupted, probably because your not umounting the drive properly in Linux, make sure is umounted then unplug it.....
