Truecrypt incorrect password or not a truecrypt volume

I have a problem with two external-hardrives that I cant access. I keep getting incorrect password or not a truecrypt volume I have one drive that is a 2 terabyte drive and another one that's 1 terabyte. They both where working fine when I tested them about a week ago. Since Saturday I have been trying to access the 2 terabyte drive, but I just keep getting incorrect password.

I have been searching the net for almost 3 days now but still cant find any solution.

Yesterday I also tested the 1 terabyte drive but still no luck. I know that both the drives cant be malfunctioning.

I really have allot of important files on the 2 terabyte drives, damn I just cant lose them, I really hope someone can help me with this, thanks.

Sorry there EternalSeeker, but your out of luck if you don't have the correct password. No one here on Seven Forums will lead you to any password cracker.

A Question, What kind of data are you protecting on 3 terabytes of drives?

I'm not asking for a password cracker, my passwords worked fine for about a week ago. It was on this saturday that was that I couldn't access my 2 terabyte drive. The password that I enter for my drives i know it is the right one.

Double posting will not get you anywhere. If your password doesn't work then you most likely out of luck.

Eternalseeker,sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings but unless your system has changed and the password won't work. then your mostly out of luck.

I suggest you try to access the drives on another computer using your password.

One thing that pop'd into my head when I looked at the truecrypt site was the version number your using?

Might want to try another machine as pbcopter recommends.

I tried on my other pc that runs windows xp been trying for hours but I still get the problem on both drives its so odd. First when my pass dident work on the 2 terabyte drive I started to think that it was malfunctioning then after that I tried the other drive and it was still the same problem.

I'm currently on vacation in the US and I'm from Norway can the problem be that the language and region now has been changed.

The odd thing is both off the drives have the same password, I have never experienced anything like this with truecrypt before.
