Did you have any luck/progress with recovering the lost partition(s)? I got the same error, and now I'm scouring the web for any help. What did you try?

Did you make a backup??
The only thing that I can think of off the top of my head would be to run chkdsk since the files seem to be there just not able to see them

Start>Run> CHKDSK I: /f

If windows sees the partition and shows the space as being used, but no files are visible, re-assigning a drive letter to it should make the info visible long enough to get your data off it. However, if you check the partition for errors, you'll get the same error. Plan on reformatting when all is said and done.
If it doesn't work, try TestDisk, it's free
