Make sure to run Disk Utility until it tells you that the volume is okay TWICE IN A ROW.

Norton Utilities once managed to completely kill one of my external drives - to the point where i was calling up data-rescue services.

Alsoft DISKWARRIOR fixed all directory/partition map problems within three minutes.

I am not affiliated with them; I just whole-heartedly recommend their product. It has saved a lot of asses.

Of course, I cannot rule out a possible hardware issue.
