Is this external drive borked?

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I was trying to copy something off this drive in Mint 13 but it was going horrendously slow. I tried to cancel and unmount but it seemed to hang, so I disconnected it and tried it in another port. Since then all I get is the attached error message. Windows seems to ignore the drive completely. I haven't tried to format yet as there are some files I'd like to copy off it first if possible... are there any tools that might help?
