I have a Seagate external hard drive that DOES show up in My Computer, My Devices, and Disk Management. Disk Management even says that the partition is "healthy." But, I can't open the drive to access anything within it. If I double click or right click on it to try to access any information about it or view the files within, Windows Explorer tries to open it, but it never completes the process. I tried doing a virus scan on the drive, and even that process got stuck and could never complete.

Is there any way to get inside this supposedly healthy drive?
