Running Chkdsk/r on the Drive and see if that improves the situation.

It's possible that the Drive is lacking sufficient power to actually run so check the Data Connection and Power Connection. If this gets it's power from the USB Ports and there are 2 USB Connectors on the Lead the one at the end of the lead is a Power Lead only and the one toward the middle is a Data & Power Plug which is the one that needs to be plugged in to access the Drive.

If that doesn't help post back with the type of OS you are using as different versions of Windows need different specific Directions.

Well OH Smeg has got a point.. Do check if the connection is proper and once you do that try formatting it through DOS..
Do a help on the FORMAT command and you will get all the options.. Just for starters a FORMAT {drive letter with a colon} would do
