Disk corruption.. need help! - Invalid sector size: 0
I use osx 10.8 and WIn7 with refit boot, a SSD with both systems and a 1To Samsung HDD formatted to FAT for being used by both systems, and that worked fine for 2 month..
suddenly, after I rebooted from win7 to osx system, the 1To Samsung appears as RAW,
when I launch disk utility it says "Invalid sector size: 0", and that it could not repair this disk and it has to be formatted..
any advices ?
what disk utility would you recommand ?
is disk warrior only for HFS or it also works with FAT ?

If it's a bad sector on the HDD I recommend you use a PC DOS-based program called Spinrite which is a maintenance utility and data recovery utility. You have to have an IBM-PC in order to use it though. You take the HDD out of the Mac and connect it to the IBM-PC and run the program. Below is my old MBP HDD in a Dell PC with Spinrite working on it.

i tried diskwarrior 4, but it seems to work only with hfs,
mine is FAT
actually i'm running Get Data Back. Actually scanning for a few hours. I will tell you about the results later.

Do you have version of OS X with Recovery HD? Anything later than 10.7 creates a separate partition and you can boot into it and repair from there.
Hold option while booting and select Recovery HD.
