Specs: Windows XP, 5GB
I ripped IDE 2.5" hard drive out of my wrecked laptop(WinXP), bought a USB enclosre case, and hooked up with my new laptop(WinXP).But I couldn't access to that drive.

So I tried this method discribed in this post.

Yes, it was successful and I could open the drive and saw files and documents intact.

So I selected all, copy them, and pasted it to another external hard drive.

Then the error occurred. After that I couldn't access to that drive any more. The error message is this.

Unable to mount 40 GB Filesystem

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x43425355 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 834 usa_count: 65535: Invalid argument

Failed to mount '/dev/sdc1': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

Try chdsk /F on it first.

Might try testdisk or other file/fomat/partion recovery software or something like unstoppable copies.

I have been through this and there is nothing to panic. Simply contact data recovery experts and other professional data recovery services. I am sure this wont cost you much because last year i did it in $65 but of course my case wasn't that complicated. Consult these experts i salute them :)
