Question about Seagate FreeAgent (ST305004FDA1E1-RK) 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I think you need to format your portable hard drive
but you can try these step to recover your data
type cmd on run menu (if you use windows xp: left click on start menu and you will see a run box, if you use windows vista or 7: right click on start menu and just type cmd on search program and files box)
you will be in a command prompt and it will be C:\\
then type the path of your hard drive (for example F:)
after the path show your drive (for example F:) type attrib -s -h -r -a /s /d
wait until the process finish
now you can open your portable hard drive by right click on start menu explore, not click on my computer, and if you can explore your files just recover it to your PC then you need to format it, but if it can't access any way what you need is just to format it.
To format your portable hard drive, you can use these steps
right click on my computer
in the storage tab click disk management
right click to the path of your portable hard drive
let the file system on NTFS
thick quick format
let the process finish
notes: you will lost your data during this way

The problem seems to be an infection of a virus which has changed the icon of your removable drive and also when you open it up you get the "open with" option by default.
Please follow the below instructions.
Hope this helps...:)
Your feed back would be appreciated.
