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.

from what you have written it seems that the Hard Drive is dead and doesn't have the ability to read the drive.
You will need a new hard drive this one is not recoverable.
