couldn't load ext3



Hi
I am running a PC under Linux SuSE 7.2 with kernel 2.4.18, self compiled.
I changed some days ago the partition of my second HD from ext2 to ext3 with the help of tune2fs -j /dev/hdb2 and everything was running OK.
Today, I had a problem with a frozen display and I had to reboot the box cold. During the corresponding forced check I got the following messages:

/dev/hdb2: reading journal for ext3 file system...
fsck.ext3: Invalid argument:couldn't load ext3 journal for /dev/hdb2
fsck.ext3: /dev/hdb2 failed ( status 8 )! run it manually
....
fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot
---------

After I enter fsck /dev/hdb2 i got:

e2fsck 1.19, 13-jul-2000 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
/dev/hdb2: reading journal for ext3 file system...
fsck.ext3: Invalid argument:couldn't load ext3 journal for /dev/hdb2
fsck.ext3: /dev/hdb2 failed ( status 8 )! run it manually

If I try to boot with the boot DK or with the CD ( Linux SuSE 7.2 ) I get the same wording.

What can I do ? As I was just experimenting with ext3, I can reformat the second HD if necessary ( partiton magic ). However, the informations in the first HD are extremely important for me ( second HD was backup for HD 1 ;-(   )

Thanks in advance for any hints !
