I am not able to open my external hard-drive, it opens fine in Windows and Ubuntu but not Fedora19. When I run "fdisk -l" I get the following output :

fdisk: cannot open /dev/sdb: Input/output error

How do I solve this ?

Check the output of dmesg before and after you plugin your disk. Most likely it's a disk error that a simple disk check will fix. It could be some sort of bug too, but we can't comment until you check dmesg.
