The problem you're having is not at all uncommon. The external drive may simply have been disconnected improperly or may have experience a small power surge while it was writing files.
The files on the drive are most likely still retrievable should you need them. If you already have copies of all of them you can simply reformat the drive and recopy them to it. If you do not have copies, whatever you do, do not format the drive.
Assuming the damage is logical(lost the partition table), your files should be recoverable through a relatively inexpensive data recovery process. Should the drive turn out to actually be failing they are likely still recoverable but this tends to be more expensive.
There are a lot of good companies that can handle this type of recovery. The one I often use for my clients it Armor-IT Data Recovery. Although they have recently gone private(gov't contracts) you can still find them by searching the above on google and they still do private work out of Canada, they just don't advertise anymore.
Hope this helps FixYa

SOURCE: replacement power cables
Can find them on eBay, if you can narrow down on the manufacture date. For the model I had, either Acbel AD6008 OR Asian Power Devices (APD) DA-30C01 work. I ordered a replacement which worked - but my real problem was needing a new hard drive casing. So now I have 2 power cords I don't need...but at least I have my data.

Overview for the WD1600B015 dual option USB:
Power supply not available in WD shop, but there's worldwide email and telephone support: select your country from the next page:
Send your request to the WD support desk in your country.
When using the telephone line: in Europe, phone numbers starting with 00800 are international free call numbers. Using any other phone number, check your local provider.
Notice: when the power adapter has a seperate cord connected from the wall outlet to the adapter, mostly this will not be provided and has to be bought elsewhere ( Ask when ordering the adapter ).

Take it our of the external encasing and plug it in directly to your motherboard. This has worked for me in the past. I just had my second wd external harddrive crash so now I will do the same process all over again.
