Have you tried running it again without the hacksaw files just downloading the new lpinstaller from the site and running it. Ummmmm What kind of drive do you have???

Try a Live Linux distro and see if you can play with the drive that is what helped me get mine back. It was a non-u3 drive though

hey ya i didnt know u had to be connected to the internet to run it cause i use dial up so i ran the installer without being connected to download the update and then after it was done i removed it and now it doesnt work but right now im installing the update and i am connected thorough the internet so i am hoping...fingers crossed...that this may make it work...any other advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated...

I figured being connected would fix it you possibly did not have the files in the correct directory that is why when it went to flash the drive it corrupted it. Not sure how but sounds like what might have happened. Then just re-installing when connected to the net it flashed the normal stuff on there. Normally you would not want the installer to connect to the net you want it to flash your drive with the switchblade/hacksaw software instead. :)
