geek SOS

Well, the external 60gb FireWire drive I have won't mount anymore. OS X says it can't read it, asks me if i want to initialize or ignore, like this:

[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<img [...] http://www.vektor7.com/files/doktor/error2.jpg">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I tried running DiskWarrior, as many say it's the best in these situations. Not much help, as you can see:

Drive10 is also helpful, so i turned to that next.

It told me what was wrong:

but was unable to fix it:

I'm stumped. All my tracks and personal stuff were backed up, but my 40 gb mp3 collection was the next thing due to be backed up, and the drive went before I got to it. Most of it is replaceable ( a friend has 90% of it on his hard drive from when I moved the 60gb drive from my PC to the firewire case.) But I'd rather not lose my last 3 months worth of mp3s, and since the drive seems to have no hardware problems according to Drive10, I'd like to try and salvage it.

Any advice? Other programs to try? Voodoo rituals? Heelp meeee!
