That makes little sense

You can search it and find what you want, but when you search it, you can't find anything....

Does that mean that what you are trying to search for is, in fact, nothing?

I think he is saying

that the Indexing Service cannot index the external drive. It "finds nothing".

The text of the exact error message (and error code, if any) and anything relevant from the event logs would be no end of help. Whether the drive was formatted with the current OS may make a large difference as well.
