Unsearchable MS error messages

A friend asked me to have a look at a USB harddisk which cannot be accessed anymore.

I plug it into my PC, try chkdsk g:, and get the message:

Der Typ des Dateisystems ist NTFS.
Version und Status des Datenträgers konnten nicht festgestellt werden. CHKDSK wurde abgebrochen.

Try to google the phrase, or use MSDN if you prefer, and receive… NOTHING.

Now wouldn’t you expect all the funny messages that Windows (or *any* operating system, for that matter) generates, to be searchable on the web? Plus statements by the respective manufacturer about their meaning and possible solutions?

I mean, the time is, uhm, 2008!
