I'm not 100% sure it'll work, but try and download Crystal Disk Info to see if it detects the drive as damaged in any way. That's the only thing I can think of, but I'm not really all that good at computers.

On Windows 7:

 

  1. Click the Start button
  2. In the search box type "Computer Management"
  3. When it opens, there is a Storage/Disk Management item on the left side list; select it
  4. A window on the right opens and you'd see all the partitions on all your harddrives (THIS IS THE TRICKY PART, BE CAREFUL YOU MIGHT SELECT YOUR MAIN WINDOWS PARTITION)
    1. Right click the partition you want deleted
    2. Click Delete Volume
  5. Once you have deleted the volume, this will free up space, the tricky part is that you have to delete all the volumes and create a single large one

Good luck and before you do this, read up on articles online, im sure theres a more comprehensive guide available. just to be sure you know what you're doing.

 

If you delete a volume by mistake, you will lose all the information on the volume (files/documents/games/pictures/music/video everything). so you really have to do some research first.
