    Volume is corrupt. You should run chkdsk.

    Updating support boot partitions for volume, as required.
    Error: Disk Utility can not repair the disk. Save as many files as possible , reformat the disk, and then restore your backed up files .

    So if you can help i will be very thankful.

    The hard drive is in NTFS format which OS X does support natively. Did you have a driver installed in OS X for NTFS?

    Do you have issues if you plug the driver into a USB port on a Windows computer?

    EDIT: If you plug the hard drive into a Windows PC and you still are having the same issue then the hard drive might be bad.

    I agree!
    Do you have access to a Windows PC?
    That may be your best choice to test and repair an NTFS-formatted drive.

    Yes, that is why two different people have suggested it.
