Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Had the same problem with the 120GM IOMagic. I removed the drive from the case, detached the circuit board leaving just the Hard drive and hooked it up to a cable I bought that allows you to read any hard drive through the USB post. Was able to retrieve all the data on the disk. The problem was the iomagic interface board.

You probably still need to partition it, before you can even format it.
Try the disk manager in Windows.
In the start menu, right-click "My Computer" and in the popup menu, select "Manage".
One computer management comes up, select disk management and there you should see the disk. You can then create a partition and format it.

I know this is an old thread, however if it helps any one try this:
Zippys power supply failed for me also. The problem here is your case support USB 2.0 ("A high speed USB device") and your port is only USB 1.1 ("plugged into a non-HI-SPEED usb hub"). This will not give adequate power to the drive. So use a y-cable (http://www.toshibadirect.com/images/ui3/accessories/toshiba-usb-y-cable-ba82010-300.gif) and connect one end to your casing and the two pins at the other end should be connected to two USB ports. (get it at http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/adet.to?poid=438342).
Another costlier way is to upgrade to USB 2.0 by a card like this http://www.belkin.com/support/download/download.asp?category=1&lang=1&mode=
or even better a USB 3.0 card : http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=lGYmelQ8mJvPtYTv
