You are probably talking about the partition tables or what not. One way to try to fix this is to use fdisk or sfdisk, because they may be able to help you fix the information. My suggestion until I can help you further: look up all you can on fdisk or sfdisk or stuff like that, because that may be able to help you better. I think that if 'dd' is used, the whole drive may be translated into a disk image (something that when written to an actual disk, shows the information in actual files).
Just to comment, here is an example (basic) of how 'dd' would be used the way you may be talking about:
dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/folder/ImageOfHardDrive bs=1024
