How to access files on an external hard drive that's malfunctioning

I was ready to dump my old computer, so I bought an external hard drive in order to copy all my files on to it and move them to a new computer. As I was doing so, I found the option of creating a briefcase instead of just files, so I put all my music, photos etc in one briefcase and copied it all onto the hard drive.
After I connected that external hard drive to my new computer, I wasn't able to access any of the files. The hard drive appears on my desktop, I can open it and all and even copy paste some of the files which are outside of the briefcase. However, as soon as I try to access the briefcase an error occurs and everything freezes! Any ideas? Some of the stuff on there is really important to me!!
