Hey everyone i am a nubie however i have scoured the sight and not come
accross my exact problem or a solution to it.

thanks for your assistence and suggestions 0
i found a way around my problems for anyone who has this problem in
future, i borowed a mates xp computer with sata drives and transfered
all my content from the vista x64 inaccessable drives to the vista x64
recognised drive and then formatted the two x64 drives i had problems
with, and now all work fine and all files are recognised in
vistax64.
