More about hard drive opening file system type instead
  1. run a check disc on the hard drive http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1782
    is this hard drive from another pc or windows install? try to take ownership of the files.
  2. Lost your partition table... To recover the data u ll have to use a "professional" data restore utility... Personal tip Getdataback for ntfs... Already saved tons of gigabytes with that ...
