first of all sorry for my english -- it's not very good

i have a fat32 partition and i have accesed to it without any problem until now. Now i always get an input/output error every time i try to copy, erase or create a file or directory.

i have run fsck.vfat and i get this output:

user@debian0:~$ sudo fsck.vfat -r -t -v /dev/hdb1
dosfsck 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
dosfsck 2.11, 12 Mar 2005, FAT32, LFN
Checking we can access the last sector of the filesystem
Boot sector contents:
System ID "MSWIN4.1"
Media byte 0xf8 (hard disk)
512 bytes per logical sector
16384 bytes per cluster
32 reserved sectors
First FAT starts at byte 16384 (sector 32)
2 FATs, 32 bit entries
19533824 bytes per FAT (= 38152 sectors)
Root directory start at cluster 284045 (arbitrary size)
Data area starts at byte 39084032 (sector 76336)
4881874 data clusters (79984623616 bytes)
63 sectors/track, 255 heads
63 hidden sectors
156296322 sectors total
Got 315392 bytes instead of 19527504 at 16384

but it does not seem to fix the problem.

I would be very grateful if somebody could tell me what the problem can be or any help.

Thanks a lot in advance
