Sounds like you may have a corrupted drive or that the file catalogue on the drive is corrupted. Try accessing the drive on a different machine, if you can suspect the usb ports or the cable from the drive, if you still cannot gain access, the drive is corrupted.
There are people who can extract the data off a corrupted drive but this is expensive so if you dont really need the data on the drive, reformat and start again..
VIA needs to stop making USB chipsets... lol... Are you sure you have USB legacy support enabled? Moreover, the default Windows XP drivers are not error free when used with a VIA Rev 5 USB Host Controller because it's actually a VIA Enhanced Host Controller. Every time I have USB problems with the VIA Enhanced Host Controller I go to there website, download the driver, and it usually fixes the problem.
Moreover, I have plugged in a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse and Windows XP could not detect it until I installed Microsoft Intellipoint; if you can believe that. Try also installing the mouse drivers as well...
