So...somehow my secondary hard drive seems to have gotten I think it's MBR wiped out. Not sure how since I turned it off one night and it was fine and the next day...nothing. Checked for viruses and all that and nothing there it seems. Anyway, now it's in RAW format and I was wondering if there is any way I can get it back to a readable FAT32 without reformatting and losing all my precious data that?

If you lost the MBR on the hard drive you can restore it with a DOS command. Disconnect your primary HD then boot to a floppy disk that containes the same version of Windows you are currently using. After you boot type this command:
fdisk/mbr and then hit the enter button.

That command will restore the MBR to the HD.

Good luck on getting your data back...

It could be that that hard disk is faulty or something along that line and the computer its self just hasent detected any problems...
