Externel HDD duplicate greyed out on finder?

My friend accidentally unplugged my HDD without ejecting it, and when I plug it back in, this is the display I get on finder:


... For some reason, there's a duplicate version that I can't click/access that appeared when the original one was unplugged. How do I get rid of this? I can't seem to download into the HDD now without a "permission denied" error, because there's two drives with the same name.

Have you tried rebooting? How about Disk Utility?
I would scream just to be heard, as if yelling at the stars - I was bleeding just to feel.
You would never say a word, kept me reaching in the dark - always something to conceal.
