Dead Again

Ugh. Hit a powerstrip powering a USB disk just as the laptop was writing to it. Now when I attach the disk to a machine the result is the same: all the drivers get mounted, the hardware is recognized, the read light on the disk lights up for what seems a lot of accesses, but the end result is that the volume does not show up either under My Computer or any of the administrative disk tools. Thus I can't even scan for errors. My data was backed up, but I fear we'll have to re-rip all of Dean's CDs, and we now have a very expensive doorstop. I am so tired.
