Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
Have you scanned it with your antivirus
According to your description, your USB drive is probably virus-infected. In fact, nowadays, some virus would hide your drive files and create some useless shortcuts. That's why you cannot find them.
So, scan your drive as soon as possible. Take care not to separate or delete some important data.
But, if the antivirus tool cannot make a sense, your USB drive may get some problems.
If you really want to get back your data, you'd better try a USB drive data recovery freeware that ca deeply scan your drive and restore all your needed data back from free:
PS: In the future, you'd better always back up everything important at least on two hard drives in case of similar data recovery problems.

have the files been deleted from the laptop? if not i would simply do a fresh format on the external and re migrate data. if they are then you can get software such as undelete or recover my files to restore your deleted data off of your laptop drive.

I believe this is a trojan. I have the same problem. I found by going into Properties-shortcut tab- you have to rename the shortcut to the correct shortcut. You should notice some wierd file name like "keuiku.scr." Simply rename it to the original name and it works for me.
