Go to Start> All programs> Accessories> Right click comd prompt and select run as administrator
In cmd window that appears type this:
chkdsk x: /f

(where x = drive letter associated with your external hard drive, and before x: and after x: there is a space)

and press Enter.

Command chkdsk (check disk) will correct errors and your external hard drive will be accessible again.
