External Hard Drive crashes explorer

Lately windows explorer has been crashing every time I turn on my external hard drive. And since then I also seem to have lost all my cookie information since I now have to reapply my passwords. I have created a log using VistaForums SysInfo but I really don't know what information I should provide the forum with to solve this problem. I was using a program that searches for duplicate files when the crash happened. Also as soon as I turn off the external Hard Drive explorer seems to work fine and I am always being asked to format the external hard drive.

I have SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition and Avast. Also the hard drive is a western digital.
