So, you've ran fsck but did not try to repair yet, right? If so and you do
happen to have a spare 750 GB *now*, try to dd(1) your data to this spare

I have not run fsck to repair with the previous disk this when wrong, so I will buy a spare 750 GB disk today, and make a dd image from the one disk to the other.

Are there any (USB-)device related errors in the syslogs? We don't wanna
run fsck when the underlying device is unstable. dd(1) would be a good way
to find out.

I have seen the usb bus reset errors before but I cant put my finger on the broken part. I have now been copying data from one usb disk to an other usb disk without any usb error messages and this is a 4 hour transfer.

Also, is LVM or RAID or sth. like this involved? Searching the net for
these errors brought up quite a few hits related to LVM b0rkage...

No RAID setup, but i am planning a software raid setup soon.

However, let's hope some ext3 hacker will comment on the logs...

yes lets hope so...
