How to resolve "Corrupt master file table, chkdsk aborted" problem?

I have a external hard drive (1TB) for my data which is my D drive (Data). When I boot up Windows I get the BSOD reading -
"Checking file system on D: The type of the file system is NTFS. Volume label is Data.
Corrupt master file table. Windows will attempt to recover master file table from disk. Windows cannot recover master file table. CHKDSK aborted.

I cannot access my D drive any more. When I try, it reads."D:\ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

I've run "TestDisk" as well and it did not help either. How can I restore the corrupt master file table for my D drive. Please help!
