I am working on trying to recover some data from a hard drive (FAT32
formatted). The drive can be mounted OK (mounted in a USB external
drive housing), but the data is not accessible. When I do an ls -al,
I get this back:

==============================
/media/usbdrive> ls -al
total 32
drwxrwxrwx 5 root root 16384 2008-06-21 17:28 ./
drwxrwxrwx 5 root root 16384 1970-01-01 01:00 ../
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? Backup
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? Vids_1992
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? Photos_1992
==============================

So... something is seriously wrong... obviously... but the question
is... is there any hope? Does anyone know any method, or tools
(Linux, Windows, whatever) that can be used to recover at least some
of the data?
