[SLUG] Argh! My drive no work

I have a big mutha of a drive with stacks of mp3s and the like on them.
It also has a couple of DOS partitions on it.  The DOS partitions are
working perfectly but the ext2 partition seems to have come unstuck:

bash-2.04$ sudo e2fsck /dev/hdc3
e2fsck 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
Couldn't find ext2 superblock, trying backup blocks...
e2fsck: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/hdc3

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

Doing what it suggests gives the same error.

How do I get the partition to talk to me again?  I'm lonely (and quiet)
without my mp3s :(
