Internet explorer closes when opening my ext drive

When I open an external drive that contains all my photos and films and click onto a file, explorer comes up with a message saying it has encountered a problem and needs to close. Occasionally this has also happened wwhen opening my documents/my pictures folder. Any advice to stop it happening

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
