Question about Computers & Internet
First i want you to make sure that the external hard drive is working. Try it on another computer and see.
If it works in other system, then Right click ' My Computer ' in your system and select
' properties' and then ' Device manager' and scan for the hardware......
Hope this will work only when your external hard drive works on other system but fails on your system.
If other system also not able to detect the external hard drive , then it has failed.
Failure of these units is often (but not always) heat related.
They are also more likely to suffer impact damage as it's far easier for these drives to fall out of bags or off of tables etc.
Recovery possibilities: Entirely dependent on the nature of the problem. Heat associated problems are often easier to tackle than impact damage problems.

Hope my info fix your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
