As you're showing a corrupt file in the list, you might want to boot back up with your Win 7 disc, go to repairs and open the Command Prompt and paste in the following.
chkdsk /r c:
then hit Enter, then hit Y for yes and hit Enter again.
After the checkdisk has run, hopefully it will have repaired your problem.

Ok. Running Western Digital Data Lifeguard diagnostic.

However, I had to connect the drive as a second drive on a another computer. The original computer, all of the sudden, showed a I/O error. I tried to boot with the drive on the new computer but it still shows a atapi.sys corrupted message. I do have access to all the files on the drive once I boot up with the new computer's own drive. (win 7)

For I/O errors...my first step is to disconnect the drive and then reattach the cables. Loose cables will create I/O errors which will be false indicators of possible hard drive problems.
A drive from System A...should not boot in System B, the drivers, components, settings are not the same.

I ran the ms repair 3-4 times and I reattached the drive to the original computer. It now works! I'm more inclined to believe that the act of reattaching everything is the more likely reason it now works. Your 1st assessment that it was more of a physical issue and not software was apparently correct.

Well...even losers get lucky guesses at times .
Let's hope that you have no further adventures with this drive...if you do, just post and we'll try to solve it.
Happy computing .
