Did you write down the exact error message? What OS exactly? You need to give a lot more information if you are going to get help. – KCotreau Jun 23 '11 at 1:32

From what you describe, it sounds as if your drive is quickly going bad. As @KCotreau mentions, we'll need more info to help, but I wouldn't hold out much hope. I suggest leaving it off until you can get someone to look at it.
