are you running windows? plug the hard disk into the USB/ESATA port, navigate to "My Computer" and find the external hard drive listed there, select the hard drive, right click on it, and go to Properties.. from there, navigate to the tools menu, and perform a check disk or /scan disk.. make sure the top check marker box is checked off "automatically fix any errors" .. leave the "scan for bad clusters" unchecked, hit scan now.. if it says it cant do it now, then click the equivlent of saying "Ok ill schedual a scan".. once that is done, reboot the computer.. and dont touch the keyboard or mouse until the scan is done, it wont take long.. this may fix the problem.
