If its an external drive, ensure that you empty the trash while you have it plugged in as all deleted files are stored in a folder at the root of the drive until the trash is emptied.

if not a quick search turned up this
WhatSize - FreeWare

Give that a go.

I like to use Disk Inventory X available at Versiontracker (http://versiontracker.com/), it is a great little program that shows you how much storage space each directory is taking up sorted by files.
