    I have referred you problem and I after analyzing you issue I suggest you to first check your hard drive with the computer also. Just connect it with your computer and check that in your computer it showing the contents or not? If you are able to see the contents then I think you should try to find the solution for your PS3 only. And if you are not able see the contents in computer also then please let me know. But first check your HDD with your computer.

    As you are saying that you are facing the same problem with your computer also then I think some part of your DATA is corrupted. To solve this problem I think you need to check the disk for and for the BAD sectors and if it detects any it will automatically fix those errors. According to me this will surly solve your issue and after that you will not find any problems with your HDD. Just try this solution and please let me know whether this solution solved your problem or not?

    Ok if you don’t know how to scan the HDD for bad sectors then I will help you with it. For that you need to follow these steps.
    • First you need to go to my computer then right click on the HDD drive.
    • After doing that click on the properties and click on the tools TAB.
    • Now click on the check now button. There you will find the two options.
    • Select the both option and then click on ok.

    After that it will start checking the HDD for bad sectors and it will almost solve you all the problems. I hope my information will be helpful for you.

    Re: Unable to see the data of my external hdd on computer

    I have tried so many tricks to solve this problem. Even I have scanned my hard drive twice in a day but after that also I was not able to see my data in my hard drive. After that I read your post and tried your trick also but at the start I was not sure about this solution but when I actually did bad sector scanning after that Immediately I found that all the problems are automatically solved by the system it self. Now I am able to see all the contents of my hard drive in my computer and on my PS3 also.
