What type of connection is the external hard drive using ? If usb have you tried a different usb port ?

hook it to another computer. Same thing?

if you get the same thing i would pull apart the drive case. Hook up the regular HDD to your computer as an internal.

The bridge in external drives likes to fail lots.
