I/O Error 23

Hi All
I seem to have an issue reading my external HDD from my laptop, it just stopped reading it overnight. However, I can still read the data when I connect it to my HD Media Player. Tried using GetDataBack for NTFS and FAT32, and get the 'i/o error 'unknown error (23)' reading sector 0' error. What can I do?

    The most common reason that your hard drive is giving this error is because it has been knocked while powered up. The only cure is to replace the hard drive. It may be possible to recover most of your data though.
