chkdsk /r without a drive letter would only perform it on the boot drive. :)

At this point I'm thinking it's a hardware failure in the enclosure or the drive itself. Easiest thing is to plug it into another computer. If problem follows then it's the drive. If it works on another computer then he needs to focus his attention to his computer. Seems like taking it back to BestBuy would accomplish this. :)
