Not sure what to make of this. Any input or ideas about what I should do next to fix disk and/or recover data would be greatly appreciated.

What type of hard drive and brand/model is it? Is it still recognize on Windows sytem, Windows explorer? If yes, then try Windows GUI chkdsk by right-clicking the drive then Properties - Tools and check both options.

Thanks for the reply. HD is a 1 tb seagate 9zh9p9. Windows XP SP3 and Windows Explorer recognize it. GUI error checking chkdsk dialog box simply disappears when I check one or both options and click on start. Not sure what to do next.

FWIW: http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=213051&NewLang=en

I would run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic, http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SeaTools&vgnextoid=720bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD . I prefer SeaTools for DOS for such tests.
