When you plug the Drive in does windows do a search of the drives and pop-up box come up? Also right Click My computer\Manage\Disc Manager with the Drive Plugged in, What does it say about the drive?

Have you turned them off without using Safeley remove.
I had a similar problem the MBR had gotten corrupted.
I left all on for a day and I guess Windows fixed it.
Good Luck
