Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

I am a DJ and I currently use PC DJ that I share with other DJ's here. I am the only one with a "Free Agent External Hard Drive" and for some reason, when I go to my playlist, none of my songs are working. My hard drive isn't being recognized by my computer however, all of the other users' files are fine. What do I do?
