Doing a bit of searching on Google and came up with your drive is corrupted and you will need to use a 3rd Party Data Recovery software to try and get your files back.

Some programs mentioned were:
GetDataBack
DR Disk
HDD Regenerator

None of these programs are free but they have trial versions.

Try data recovery software like GetDataBack
or Spinrite then try formatting F: drive.

Who knows why, what matters is you need to fix that partition and get your data back.

because its windows and it could

thats my answer as to why

and if you use a linux box you could try putting it in it and pulling it to a cd or on one of the other partitions

If the data isn't important, go ahead and format away.

You don't use Google very much do you?

this is done from the command prompt

Click on start, then run, type in cmd and press enter

At the command prompt trpe chkdsk x: where x is the drive letter you want o check and then press enter.

This has happened to me before, I also ended up formatting, it was not a fun thing. I had programs, music, and movies that I ripped onto it. I lost them all :(

use the command chkdsk /f f:
This will cure any problems your hard drive may have.

the f is short for fix
