Did you try any of the methods suggested in your OTHER thread, where you haven't answered the follow up questions?

You don't say what filesystem you're using, or what you want to 'update' it to, on what version/distro of Linux..so there's not much we can tell you.

You will need to boot up an operating system (obviously) to fix a file system on a drive, and in this particular case, it has to be a linux system (or any other capable of dealing with the ext3 filesystem, which Ubuntu uses by default. You cannot use a windows system (not without some serious fiddling, anyway) to repair a broken ext3 filesystem.

On a linux (or some other OS, see above) do the following:
Code:
fsck /dev/<device>
Or, as I said above, you can use something like palimpsest to format the drive, although all data would be irrecoverably lost. You could just do
Code:
mkfs.ext3 /dev/<device>
as well to achieve the same.

These are your only two options. Fix it or mkfs it.
