I have recently installed SuSE 10.1 on my external hard drive for my laptop. Everything workrd for a few days but now something has come up. Neither Windows or Linux can see any files or folders that used to be on the hard drive. Windows says that the drive cannot be accessed, Konqueror says there are no files or folders and the Konsole says
ggovan@linux-xulw:/> cd windows/D
ggovan@linux-xulw:/windows/D> ls
/bin/ls: reading directory .: Input/output error
Strangly enough my music player XMMS can still play its playlist of music that was on that drive.

Any help would be greatly appriceated.

Sorry if I havn't given enough information.

Forgot to mention that it uses ntfs as the file system.
