It's possible that files system, more exactly, the MFT or file allocation table is damaged. it may be caused by disk ejecting while the drive is still working. also it might be caused by virus infection. to fix this you can
step 1: retrieve data from the drive with recovery apps. since it can't be opened now, you need to restore data with professional tools.
If there is no important data on the drive, you can skip the step 1 and try the following solution:
Solution 1: format the drive directly. you can either format it under Disk Management or Windows Explorer with Quick Format.
Solution 2: carry out ChkDsk to repair file system errors. chkdsk /f g: g is the drive letter of the partition in question and it can be other letter in your case.
Type Y and hit Enter and restart computer to resume disk check if you get the message "Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? "

You will need to put up some more info about what type of drive it is, external/internal, what operating system you are with, how old is your drive, what was the last operation you used the drive for?

Thats not a good sign when it says disk read error/ disk corrupted. It usually indicates some sort of hardware failure. Did you try it with other USB ports or another computer for that matter? Look into the USB connector, maybe there is something foreign in there causing the errors (like dust).
