This sounds like what often happens when there is some corruption of
your disk. I repaired problems of this kind under windows XP with the
chkdisk command, namely 'chkdisk /F J:'.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>chkdsk /?
Checks a disk and displays a status report.

CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]]

   volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
                   mount point, or volume name.
   filename FAT/FAT32 only: Specifies the files to check for
   /F Fixes errors on the disk.
   /V On FAT/FAT32: Displays the full path and name of
every file
                   on the disk.
                   On NTFS: Displays cleanup messages if any.
   /R Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information
                   (implies /F).
   /L:size NTFS only: Changes the log file size to the
specified number
                   of kilobytes. If size is not specified, displays current
   /X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.
                   All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid
                   (implies /F).
   /I NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index
   /C NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder

The /I or /C switch reduces the amount of time required to run Chkdsk by
skipping certain checks of the volume.
