Thanks for your responses...
I've pretty much decided that it must be a hardware problem within the harddrive itself...Can anyone lead me in the right direction to maybe take out the harddrive to put into another external shell in order to hopefully recover my data? Again I'm using a Seagate Freeagent Desktop 500GB external harddrive.

Just because this starts with the same steps as other solutions does not mean it ends with the same fix.
1. Click Start
2. Right Click Computer: Select Manage.
3. The Computer Management Dialog box will appear.
4. Select the Disk Management Icon located in the right pane of the Computer Management Dialog box.
NOTE: Under volume you will NOT see the Seagate Drive.
5. underneath the volume pane you will see Disk 0, Disk1 and so forth. look for the Seagate drive ... mine was Disk 2.
6. Right Click on the Drive: Select Properties.
7. The "Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex USB Device Properties" will apear. Select the Driver tab.
8. Select the Uninstall Button.
9. Unplug your Seagate external hard drive and plug it back in. This should re-install the Drivers and it should work like it use to.
P.S. Sorry for the bad grammar\spelling.
