Its is normally tough to make external hard drive work after they stop working. Mostly you wont be able to retrieve the data. You might need to go to a specialist for that and it would cost you some bucks.

if the option is available in disk utility, run First Aid.
Second option will be to run a third party partition repair utility if you have one available. If it does not fix the issue, go for a data recovery software. Some have a free trial that allows you to verify if the data on your drive is retrievable with their software before you buy the complete version to recover the data.
If the software does not do it, you can try connecting the hard drive inside the enclosure directly to the computer, but take note that:
-Taking the drive out of the enclosure will void the warranty
-If any electrical damage is present on the hard drive, it can damage your computer, so unless you are competent with electronics and can recognize healthy components, do not connect the drive to a computer.
If all those have failed, you will have to contact a data recovery center for a complete diagnostic.
Make sure that you do not format or initialize the drive.
If your data is ever available during the process, copy it to two other devices/computers to prevent the risk of losing them again.

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.
Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

The Aspire One is a netbook produced by
Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional
hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a
peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate
