Place your hard drive under privacy tab where it won't search, close the preferences for it, then reopen it and remove it from the privacy tab. It will then reindex.

thanks for that tip wheels, but unfortunately it didn't fix my problem :( pressing the 'i' still doesn't do anything :(

I've found that you have to click on the "i" field several times before it responds. Try that and see how it goes. :)
