    I have 2 250GB hard drives and one stopped reading.

    It won't come up in the desktop, and when I go to Disk Utility it gives me some error.

    WHen I try to verify:

    Verifying volume “My Hard Disk Drive 2”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Invalid record count
    The volume My Hard Disk Drive 2 needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair



    When I try to repair

    Verify and Repair disk “My Hard Disk Drive 2”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Invalid record count
    Volume check failed.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


    1 HFS volume checked
    1 volume could not be repaired because of an error


    Is there any way I can save the data....it's all my tv shows and music.

    No music SUCKS!

    try booting off your osx install disc and running disc utility from there instead, see if that'll help...

    shouldn't matter, but maybe something is trying to access the drives and messing it up? :dunno:
