some ideas:

check the fs-type & if possible the version of the fs on your usb-hdd
(maybe compat probs?)

try attaching the drive b4 you power-on the box and boot

try to explicitly (mount_xy and mount-args) mount the drive (ro!)

check if the builtin hdd inside your drive can be attached directly
on the ata/s-ata/whatever bus inside your machine; copy directly

attach your usb-hdd to a working machine, copy via lan

check for bios/fw-updates for your hw, maybe usb-support get's better

hth & good luck!
