The drive may have become corrupted since you removed it when the "device was not ready to be remove" message appeared. Try running CHKDSK on the drive to correct errors.
Right click on the drive.
Click on Properties
Click on the Tools tab
Click on the Check now... button
Make sure both boxes are checked (Automatically file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors).
Click on Start.
