Have you tried reformatting it? Hopefully it will work then.

Thanks but I was hoping to recover the files and learn how to solve the problem, so it doesn't happen again. One reason I am trying Linux is to avoid periodic data loss.

You could try fsck on it; do this without mounting it first.

Code:
k1ltro,

i think you didn't read the link properly. try /sbin/fsck , if this doesn't work try /etc/fsck. Select options required.

Regards,
