Explorer.exe Crashes on Accessing Hard Drive.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 on a HP DV2214TU. I'm having a weird problem with my Western Digital Elements 1TB external hard drive. When I try to access a 133GB folder with my tutorial videos, the explorer.exe stops working. It has only FLV and VOB files on it.
Explorer.exe also suddenly crashes sometimes. I ran Defragler and CHKDSK on my primary partition and the hard drive, but it didn't detect any problems. I read about IE8's bug and removed IE to be on the safer side.
Anyone has any ideas what to do. I really don't want to format the drive as my laptop only has a 120GB HDD and I don't have any other storage medium that can store that huge content. I am no sure if it's the OS or the hard drive. I am running an Antivirus scan now, let's see what that says.
