Hi all,

I have a Maxtor 500 GB external HD connected to my laptop via USB. While my system was rebooting last night, it asked me whether I want to run CHKDSK on the external drive. I accepted and I got this error message :

"Inserting an index entry into index $0 of file 25"

After reading about it online, I ran CHKDSK from the command prompt with the /f parameter. It said something about "recovering orphaned file..." and "fixing index..." but it finished and didn't give me any error messages.

However when I go to access my files (mostly JPGs and AVIs) on the HD, I can only open a few of them. It will give me an error message saying "No Preview Available" for images and "The Player might not support the file type or the codec used to compress the file".

Can anybody help me with this?
