Question about Seagate Computers & Internet
Click Start, Click RUN and type cmd and Enter. You'll be in command window - then type chkdsk [drive:] /F (such as - "chkdsk e: /F") which should perform a repair. It will probably require a restart. Do not touch the keyboard during restart.

To expand upon what ikkenom said, this will work much better done from the command line.
(Assuming Windows XP)
Click "Start", "Run...", type "cmd" and click [OK] or press [Enter]. From the command line type "chkdsk V:\ /F". You can optionally include the "/R" option to check for bad sectors on the disk (Be patient, this will take a long time, especially if there are bad secors).
If this fails, add the "/X" option. This dismounts the volume before proceding. You may need to reboot afterwards before examining the drive.
A MS article describing this error implies that is is likely a physical disk error and the technical reason why the error mistakenly implies a paging fault: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;141117
I know how distressing it can be to loose pictures and video you've worked so hard to acquire/produce. Good luck!

I've just fixed the problem of error performing the inpage operation by using old DOS command CHKDSK <driveletter> /F. And, i'm satisfied with the MS-DOS command.

click start control panel
administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all
of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark
! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
or you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap if this solution does not work and you might need one
hope this helps you
