[linux-lvm] Bad disk?



Yesterday I added a hard drive (to put extra stuff on it) to my ubuntu 10.10 box and created a LVM in it. Then copied some files to it and restarted the machine to see if it would mount into the right mountpoint. It didn't. So I decided to see if it was there (vg in question is export):

raub strangepork:~$ sudo vgscan
  Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
/dev/dm-0: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 429496664064: Input/output error /dev/dm-0: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 429496721408: Input/output error
  /dev/dm-0: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Input/output error

  Found volume group "export" using metadata type lvm2
  Found volume group "root" using metadata type lvm2
raub strangepork:~$

Those dm-0 messages do not make me happy. dmesg and vgchange make me think the problem is on the new drive:

Glancing through http://readlist.com/lists/centos.org/centos/1/5704.html I wondered if I had the wrong file system descriptor:

raub strangepork:~$ sudo sfdisk -l /dev/sdc

Disk /dev/sdc: 60801 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors/track
Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0

/dev/sdc1          0+  60800   60801- 488384001   8e  Linux LVM
/dev/sdc2          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
/dev/sdc3          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
/dev/sdc4          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
raub strangepork:~$

I guess that rules that out. Does that mean the disk is bad? If so, is there a way to retrieve the data I put in it?
