More about :external hard drive file directory corrupted unreadable
That can happen when the master boot record is corrupted, often by disconnecting while a write has not completed. You may be able to recover files from the drive with Recuva or another recovery program. It is also worth trying to attach it to a different USB port, try one on the motherboard back plate.
