Default Directory lost on backup firewire drive

Anyone got any ideas on how to retrieve files from an external firewire drive (80 gb. Mac OSX) which won't mount because the directory has been corrupted. I'm trying everything before I use a data recovery company.

If it's a FW800 drive and your running 10.3 there is a known issue with drives becomming unrecognizable. Check out your drive manufacturers or Apple's web site for more info.
