When you try to open the files on another computer please open My Computer > tools > folder options > view. Check Show hidden files and folders. If you still can't open the files try to un-check "Hide protected operating files". If still no good re-check "hide protected operating system files".
It might be that the files are protected and when you try to reach them on another computer you have to "take ownership of the files" first. In this link you can find microsoft's instructions about how to this.
I must admit that I have never seen this problem before. Chkdsk is a very safe procedure. I am sure it is somehow related to the recovery that was performed before but that's all that I can say at the moment.

Does it matter if the USB port is 1.1 or 2.0?
It does not really matter as far as I know whether you use a USB 1.1 port or a USB 2.0 Port. The only difference between 1.1 and 2.0 USB that 2.0 is newer and FASTER - If you are running Windows XP/2000 the only thing it may complain about is that "this device can run faster" if it is NOT on a USB 2.0 Port. I have an external Seagate 160 Meg drive that runs just fine using a USB 1.1 hub - albeit a tad slow
Hope that helps
