Please upload a screenshot of the Disk Managemnent with your external drive plugged in.

Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Also clarify the following:

It shows empty - where? Again a screenshot will help.

in the properties its actually loaded - Please upload the screenshot.

Does all your files/folders in the external drive show as shortcuts in Explorer?
