for a start:
on the command line type:
mount     to get the device mount point for your SEA_DISK
umount /dev/"SEA_DISK"
fsck /dev/sdb1  (substitute whatever mount returned for your USB disc)
this should put right any errors on the disk. you may have to put in
some flags(man fsck) to get exactly what you want. This should tell you
if you have a flaky drive or not. If you're happy with the disc then don't
forget to 'mount /dev/whatever' . You may or may not need to 'sudo' this lot
,depends on whether it was mounted by root at boot up or automounter.
