    Okay.. UPDATE!
    I formatted it to exFat and it started working!
    but now when I try to reformat it to NTFS, it shows a error that CONVERT is not available for RAW drives.

    What tool did you used? I suggest you use MiniTool Free Partition Manager to manage your disk and do a surface test of your drive.

    It won't work! It shows one error found.. and it would first find one error and then it show 1500 mb/s and then it would get slower and slower till 0 MB/s and stops.. I then quitted it..
    Same thing with copying.

    It would be very useful for everyone who will try to help if you could provide an image of your Disk Management Window while that external drive is attached to your system.
