Sounds like a corrupted hard drive. Sounds strange coming from a linux
mailing list but have you tried mounting it behind another XP install
and using some of the advanced hard drive data recovery tools on it ?
I use

To recover files from my USB drive when it frags itself ( happened twice now )

It's freeware, if not open source, but it works and recovered about
two months worth of work. Wish there was a linux opensource tool that
worked as well as it does.
