    Here's some stuff. ..,,,..,,,...,.., I suggest you put them in your post #5 at pauses and breaks in your single sentence to make your message understandable for the people trying to read it. You said in post #3 that you had the same problem as the original poster. Are you now saying it's different so Ogdens' answer doesn't apply to you? This is very confusing. You should probably have started your own topic rather than taking over Miyukiai's topic, but since you're here would you please give a coherent summary of your problem?
  2. You're welcome, Kris. If you just run the CHKDSK command from your RUN box [Windows button+R] it will open its own CMD window, do its thing, and then close the CMD window immediately before you can read much. To see the results of CHKDSK you should run the command prompt first, and then execute CHKDSK inside the command prompt window. When you've finished reading the results, close the command prompt.
  3. Strange, my CMD window will operate fine with a browser window open. Perhaps you didn't get Windows' attention by clicking on the CMD window before typing? My drive was FAT-32 also. If Chkdsk is recovering a lost file, it will say "Recovering orphaned file . . .", and tell you where the file is. But if it's just cleaning up fragments it will give you that "convert lost chain to files?" message and then write a bunch of "File000x.chk" files to a hidden directory on your main drive. If you run it against your main C: drive it will only work during the boot-up process. Looks like it didn't recover things for you, but I think it was worth trying.
  4. I've never captured by firewire, but in XP I have had times where large multi-part files disappeared or failed to appear. If you suspect you might have files on the external drive that aren't showing, try this. It can't hurt your drive, but it does make my orphaned files reappear and puts them in the right directory. It might find yours for you. Run a CMD window, and input the command CHKDSK X: /F (where x: is the drive letter of your external drive)
