    yeah that is bad, i think that directory got corrupt on your HD. I honestly dont know of anyway to recover your files but someon else might.

    Have you tried terminal? Open the terminal, and type cd /Volumes/"My Book"/"desktop stuff and misc" with the quotes, since there are spaces in the file names, and see if that works. If not then you got problems :) Perhaps repair your permissions, and Disk?
