    Hi I've had my 250GB Iomega Hard drive for quite a while now but recently I've been having some problems with it. When i try to download something onto it it sometimes stops and gives me an data cyclic redunancy error message. I've looked this up and poster here before but still don't really understand what this is. Anyway, when I inserted my hard drive today it was very unresponsive but when I eventually got into it I couldn't see any of the files so I assumed it had deleted them but when I checked the HD properties it says they are still there. Any way I can get the files off the folder before I pack it in for good?

    Thanks in adance
