Does your drive make any sounds similar to these?
If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it if you need that data.
If not - try to remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to recover your files.

Plug the flash drive into the Xbox 360 USB port in the front of the machine. Hold the middle button on the Xbox 360 controller to boot the console.
Scroll to the "My Xbox" screen with the d-pad. Move right to the media option you want to access. For example, the "Video," "music" or "Picture" options are available.
Select the type of media by pressing the "A" button. The next menu is the same for all three options. Highlight "Portable Device" and then press the "A" button again.
Choose the content from the next menu. On the right side, pick the file or folder of the media you want to display with the d-pad. Press "A" again to select the folder or to play the media file.
