Do you have another drive you can swap this drive with? or can you install this drive in another computer?

How about if you download a fresh Linux ISO, and boot to it as Linux Live? Does the drive work when you are in Linux Live? The reason I suggest Linux Live is because doing so will eliminate the possibility that something got stepped on or corrupted in your installed version of Linux.

Another thing you could try: Log out, and log in as "guest" or as a different user than the one you have been logged in as. Perhaps there is an issue with the user profile that you have been logging in under.
