the error you're listing seems to be related to either a corruption on the drive or an actual drive failure

with the external drive plugged in open up a command prompt

press the windows key + R then type "run" (without quotes) in the box (or click start then run). in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f <drive letter>" (again...without quotes....and <drive letter> is the letter that the external drive shows up as) then press enter...let this run to completion then try the drive again...report any errors
