My Western Digital 1TB passport (NTFS) P/N: WDBABM0010BBK-00 recently started asking me to format it whenever I plug it in. I keep my itunes library (including the .itl library file) on the hard drive, and the last thing I did was have the hard drive plugged in and itunes open and I put my computer in hibernate. When it woke up it asked to format. This has happened to my other Western Digital passport, but I was able to fix it with a "CHKDSK J: /r /f", but that isn't working this time.
The results of CHKDSK are here:

I also tried testdisk based on another forum post.

I also tried plugging it into my pc booted up in ubuntu, but the hard drive didn't show up. I don't really know anything about linux, I just heard that might help.
I thought of formatting and then using some kind of recovery tool, but I don't know of any or how to use them.
Anyone have a solution to this? Thanks!
