Fix error 53249 [Without Data Loss]

This message shows up when I try to mount an external hard drive to my laptop through Disk Utility: error 53249. Yet the exact same external hard drive can be mounted to other computers (both Mac and PC). How do I fix error 53249? Does this process damage or change any of the files on the hard drive?
