I can strongly recommend Runtime Software's GetDataBack product. I've
used both the FAT32 version and NTFS version. It scans the drive but
does not write to it at any point. For USD 90 it's well worth the
price, it recovered data on an NTFS drive that just one day said
"Volume is not formatted" better than OnTrack's $500 program (which
scanned and found nothing).

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?
