what's the drive letter of the Hard Disk when you connect it to PC?
launch command prompt as Administrator and run this command

Code:
chkdsk H: /x

replace H with the drive letter

Consider recovering your data first, else you might permanently lose all your valuable data. You can use any recovery programs to get back those files, I’m using registered version of Stellar Phoenix software and R-Studio. These two are best in the industry and always helped me in recovering files back.

Once the data is recovered, you can go with formatting and start using the drive from scratch.
