    I use Paragon NTFS to access a firewire/USB2 1TB drive. I recently noticed that some files on it, videos', won't copy to another drive. Using ViSTA and Firewire(Boot Camped) the Vista OS says the disk is unreadable, but the Mac OSX(10.5) just hangs after so many seconds. I've identified 9 large video files I really want back, what do you guys suggest for file recovery? I have Vista Ultimate 64bit and OSX 10.5

    Please help, i want my videos...

    Odds are your videos are gone and your hard drive is toast. File recovery programs can only get back non-corrupt files from a drive that has lost its file structure.
    Good thing you have backups, right?

    PS: HFS > NTFS
    PSS: MacFUSE > Paragon NTFS
