    Don't understand the unmounting part, you were scanning through Windows (running chkdsk) or what?

    Control Panel, open System, go to the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery, remove the check from "Automatically Restart" under System Failure. This will cause the system to blue screen instead of restarting on errors and the information on the blue screen may give a clue as to the source of the issue.

    Hehe, sorry for trolling.

    OK, remember, whenever you try to scan an external disk which was still accessed by some other program, then that unmount message come.

    Now try to access the drive from a Linux LiveCD like Ubuntu. Try to access the drive after mounting and do some file operations. In my case, it has helped a couple of times.

    format from linux (as suggested by Skud) should fix it. in case it doesn't, try using this: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

    PS: have tried it only many pen drive, but never on an external HDD. not sure if it'll be able to recognize it.

    Actually if you are lucky, you don't need to format it. Linux generally recognizes the disk after chkdsk interruption messed up.

    Code:
    Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error
    Failed to read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error
    NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
    SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
    then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
    important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
    it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
    /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
    for more details.
    Tried to open it in linux that error came.
    so guess i'll have to format it then?
