Unhappy I/O problem


I have Mysql server on Fedora 8.
After a miserable electiricity cut, mysql service can not be started
I found out that I can not copy the data file of mysql.
[root@localhost mysql]# cp ibdata1 ggg
cp: reading `ibdata1': Input/output error

I tried fsck, and fixed 4-5 parts by saying yes whatever asked.
But problem is not fixed.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance

abt the I/O error

As far as my knowledge is concern, I/O error (it means that the HDD platters are not available ) cannot be resolved by the fsck utility as it is a HDD failure case. Above the HDD (the hardware) there is something called filesystem, which is repairable by fsck.

plz correct me if i am wrong
