My external HD suddenly bugged and I cannot see any of the files. Chkdsk went through it and this is what I got as a report. Any ideas of what to do?

Go to Windows Disk Management to see if the drive shows up there. If it does, post all the information listed there for that drive.

It shows up in Disk Managment. No much information given there. Just it is FAT32 and it is Healthy.

All the information is there but innacesible.
