I had an external hard drive that for some reason froze up one day while doing some work in vegas when I went to open the hard drive back up it said incorrect function cannot access, after 2 weeks of internet searching I figured out that it was a bad casing that my hard drive was stored (piece of crap). I took it out and installed as a slave drive on my system and "vaola" there was all my stuff. I tried opening up vegas and it opened but I got a message saying the media manager could not be used. Then I tried to open a veg. file that I had stored on there and it said that it wasn't a valid WIN32 file. What does this mean and is the file screwed up and lost. It was a couple of hours worth of work and I don't want to have to start over. I also learned a lesson not to keep the vegas software stored on an external hard drive. I couldn't access it the whole time, that sucked. I appreciate any help you can give me.
