yea and it shows up in disk mgr with 5gb usable and the
35gb with the data on as unallocatable....
it does not have a drive letter and when I do a right
mouse click the only option is partition... It was
originally fat32 and soes not show ntfs as type...

"Simple Steps for Partition Table Recovery". From there its
