External USB Hardrive Problem

The 160GB drive with 70GB free space works ok except for one folder containing about 20GB of Drama recorded in MP3 format.

All other folders work ok but I can't access this one. I get "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" The input/output device is obviously the external USB hard drive.

I can't run any checks on it such as cleanup, error check or defrag. I run XP.

Any ideas?
