Windows 7: Brand New External Hard Drive Acting Weird after True Crypt

Brand New External Hard Drive Acting Weird after True Crypt

So I've been using True Crypt for a good 3 years and have never encountered a problem like this before.

I recently purchased a 1.5TB WD external harddrive that I created a new hidden volume in. The hidden volume is basically as large as it would let me make it. Anyway, it took me about 10 hours to make the volume but it was working somewhat fine afterwards. The videos loaded/seeked much slower than I was used to with my other WD external hard drives but I shrugged it off. A few days ago, I tried to mount the hidden volume within the hard drive but the program completely froze and I was not even able to close through Task Manager. I ended up just restarting my computer but when I got back to it after a fresh reboot the disc no longer worked. I'm thinking of returning the product but if I can salvage it somehow I'm okay with that as well.

I've googled around and tried all the suggestions but still no luck. I've tried fixing it through the safemode and have tried formatting. All with no results. Can anybody help me out here? Or Should I just get a refund.
