    Angry Hard Drive Failure w/ 10.04

    Hey everyone,

    I just recently started using my external hard drive again, a Seagate Freeagent Pro 500GB drive, to move music from one computer (Ubuntu 10.04 desktop) to another computer (Windows XP laptop). Last night, I had the drive plugged into my desktop, and it was running updates. I left it plugged in all night. Tonight, I unmounted it and quickly unplugged it from the desktop - I realized I had gotten an error message on the unmount, but it was too late, I had already unplugged it. I don't remember what it said but the drive hasn't worked since. I've plugged it into the laptop and the desktop, tried other power outlets, etc. Nothing works. I've been searching in my log files for some errors that occurred today and I found all of this:

    Code:
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:10 nikki-desktop ntfs-3g[5601]: Unmounting /dev/sdf1 (Pickle!)
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694001] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdf] Unhandled error code
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694006] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdf] Result: hostbyte=DID_NO_CONNECT driverbyte=DRIVER_OK
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694014] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdf] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 00 00 3f 00 00 08 00
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694036] end_request: I/O error, dev sdf, sector 63
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694046] Buffer I/O error on device sdf1, logical block 0
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694054] Buffer I/O error on device sdf1, logical block 1
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694061] Buffer I/O error on device sdf1, logical block 2
    syslog.1:Nov  2 19:21:16 nikki-desktop kernel: [18519.694068] Buffer I/O error on device sdf1, logical block 3
    It looks like the unmount caused all of the error messages. Can anyone figure out exactly what happened and/or know how to fix it? The OS doesn't see the hard drive AT ALL. Not under fdisk, not in lsusb, not in /dev/sd*... nothing.

    Of course, I have everything from my entire life on this drive... and I don't have a backup. So if anybody has any advice at all, I'd appreciate it so incredibly much. Thanks so much in advance.
