Debug will be looking at the memory, and the HD editor will be looking at a
disk sector. They are looking at two totally different things, which is why
you see different results.

First I would suggest you download the PDF file from the Microsoft website
called fatgen103.pdf. This is the "Bible" on the FAT format. Second see if
you can find a copy of Norton Disk Doctor, or the original Norton Utilities
which has an excellent disk editor in it.

If you are trying to recover data I suggest take it to someone who knows how
to extract the data before you make things worse.

Other wise you probably will end up reformatting the HDD but you may have
some luck with DISK MAGIC or NORTON'S utilities.
