Hi Cyber, & Welcome to Tom's Hardware!
Have you tried the cmd Chkdsk /f/r DriveLetter:
With you system booted up, and the ext drive connected, Open the CMD prompt, run as administrator. Type the above command with the 2 switches, then a space, and the drive letter of the ext drive and the colon.
It will take some time, probably 4-6 hours for a 1 TB disk. There is a reasonable chance that will correct the inpage error you are getting.
ok thanks John I am on it ,will keep you advised,though it may take a while to find the time. Regardless I'll let you know...It seems so logical wonder why I never thought of it.. thanks
