Have you tried that drive on a diferent computer to see if the same issue follows? I would recommend to scan the drive with some diagnostics software like WD’s Data Lifeguard Diagnostics or the Windows’s CHKDSK.EXE if possible, if this is not possible then the best option you have left to at least use the drive again is to reformat the drive, please remember that reformatting the drive will erase everything in it, you might be able to recover that information if you use some data recovery software, I do not know much about them but I’ve heard that FileScavenger is a good application to recover erased or corrupt files on drives, you can Googlen this application up to download it.
