    Hi,

    I have an external Samsung 160 gb hard drive that was loaded with about 90 gig of music. I tried cloning it to a brand new Maxtor larger 250 gb drive. The clone said it finished successfully and now when I plug EITHER drive in, it shows they both are empty. The crazy thing about the original Samsung drive is that it only shows it having ONE 30gb partition. I am assuming somehow my partition that actually had the music on it has been corrupt or damaged to where it can't be read. When ever I try to access to drive through 'my computer' it asks me if I want to format!!??? I know all this data MUST be on this drive.. Why does it say the drive only has one 30gb parition? Any help would be appreciated! Its making me sick to my stomach to think all my music could be lost! :(

    Thanks.

    Chris
