[mythtv-users] Converting LVM from fedora 5 to Fedora 7

Hi List,

I am converting my system from Fedora 5 to Fedora 7 and the only problem that 
I have encountered so far is that the LVM from the old system causes.

EXT3-fs error (device dm-2): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - 
inode=16793711, block=33587205
attempt to access beyond end of device
sdb: rw=32, want=268698095, limit=66055248


and when I list the files in the mounted dir it lists them as

-rw-r--r--  1 root   root   1130244096 2006-12-17 21:54 
-rw-rw-rw-  1 root   root        37946 2006-12-29 17:16 
-?????????  ? ?      ?               ?                ? 
-?????????  ? ?      ?               ?                ? 
-rw-r--r--  1 root   root   2118948864 2007-01-02 20:48 
-rw-rw-rw-  1 root   root        36003 2007-03-12 22:46 
-rw-rw-rw-  1 root   root        33399 2007-01-08 12:30 

Some are readable and some not 

Is there a way to convert the older LVM to a newer version or am I going to 
have to format the drive and start from there ??

 I read that the new LVM saves some space at the end of the disc and the older 
didn't. So I guess that there isn't a way to convert, but I am hopefull.

This is important as the old LVM drive contains my recordings and at present I 
dont have anywhere else to copy them.

Any help appreciated.
