Verify Failed: disk object invalid or unable to serialize

Got upstairs to my hackintosh and tried to load a movie off my backup drive and it was running very slowly so I restarted.

Backup drive doesn't mount. Open Disk utility and look there. Backup drive is listed but the partition underneath it is listed as "____________________________________________________________________" and won't mount. Then i notice that some of my other files on my desktop are renamed so the cat was sitting on my keyboard at some point last night before it locked.

I can't mount the partition because i get the error in the title, but I'm pretty sure if i could rename the partition it should load because it says the most recent backup was 8:33pm tonight

if I can't figure this out i lose all time machine backups AND my movies, photos, etc that are on that drive

help, please!
