I believe the external hard drive file system is corrupted and that is the reason it shows you the formatting error. To use this drive again you need to format it first and don’t worry about your important data you can extract it from the dive with the help of free data recovery software of Stellar Phoenix. Good Luck!!

DO NOT FORMAT the drive under ANY circumstance
Right My Computer --> Manage --> Disk Management

Right click on long bar of that drive
Select change drive letter and path option
Assign a new drive letter

You should be able to see you data

If no luck, then you will need to use a Data Recovery Program. Do not reformat it.
