    Really appreciate it if someone can solve my problem.

    OS: Window XP SP2
    HDD x 2 : 40 GB Hitachi, 250 GB Maxtor

    When i switched on the computer, there was a disk check normally due to improper shut down BUT i'm very sure i did shut down properly.
    After checking, it booted up as per normal. But i decided to do a defragmentation since i had not done that for quite some time. But wasn't able to complete the task as the system prompted that there was some file system inconsistency. So i decide to run chkdsk in safe mode and everything ran smoothly. Fixed all problems, no bad sectors. So i reboot in normal mode and tried to defrag again but still to no avail. So decided to give up defragmentation using windows. Instead used perfect disk and it was able to defrag and the results was pretty satisfying. BUT now, i cant run the videos or file that was in my maxtor hdd, the drives that were giving me problems. Distortions in the images and file are unable to open properly.
    Read a article that states inconsistent file system may cause data corruptions.

    So any kind soul could lend a helping hand??

    Thx in advance
