    first tell us which "file system" your drive G is. is it NTFS or FAT32.

    If its FAT32 then convert it into NTFS file system.

    from "My Computer", right click "G" drive, goto "Properties->press "Tools Tab" ->select "Error Checking- "check now". now a dialog box opens & asks, "Automatically fix File System Errors" & "Scan for & attempt recovery of bad sectors".
    ==>>select both check box & click start.

    it'll take some time (more than 20 mins.), so wait & see the result.

    let it run once completely.

    then try this :
    run regedit
    Edit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager
    Change the BootExecute entry from:
    autocheck autochk * /.........
    To:
    autocheck autochk *

    or else try this :
    Start> Run> bring up a command prompt by typing in "CMD" and type " fsutil dirty query g: ". This queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty. Next, type "CHKNTFS /X G:". The X tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive (G) on the next reboot. At this time, manually reboot your computer, it should not do a Chkdsk and take you directly to Windows.

    Once Windows has fully loaded, bring up another CMD prompt and type and now you want to do a Chkdsk manually by typing "Chkdsk /f /r g:". This should take you through 5 stages of the scan and will unset that dirty bit. Finally, type "fsutil dirty query g:" and Windows will confirm that the dirty bit is not set on that drive.

    hope it helps.
