This is only an example this might not be the correct lead and you might be able to find one at your closest computer store for free local pick up.
Hope this helps.

Format your hardrive for Mac OS:
Go to Disk Utilities under the go menu in your finder. Select the external drive and click on the erase tab. Clikc erase again and it formats the drive. You can now copy files onto the drive.

Hi Trajan & Cossrock,
Both may be as simple as stopping in at the local computer store and buying a new enclosure to move the drive into, however in Trajans case if the drives were working as a stripe set yours will likely need more in depth help.
So Cossrock, pop into your local computer store and have them test the AC adapter, it may simply need replacing, if not then try moving the drive to a new enclosure. If that doesn't work then you will need the help of a Data Recovery Expert and I can point you in the right direction, just comment back here and let me know how you made out.
Trajan, if your NAS box was simply running two drives seperately you should be able to move them into seperate cases or another dual drive case similar to Cossrocks solution, however if they are RAIDed you will likely need more assistance, please check and comment back if they are in RAID format. Also even if they are not in RAID many NAS boxes use a Linux OS and therefor a Linux format on the drive, if this is the case comment back and I will get you a link to a Linux file format driver but please include your OS Wndows Vista/XP/2000, Mac, Linux etc.
Well folks hope this helps you both out and like I said comment back with an update if you run into trouble and I will keep helping on the next steps.

Unfortunately, Windows isn't the most efficient operating system when it comes to it's "Plug 'n Play" abilities. In my experience, external hard drives can be particularly sensitive when it comes to unplugging the data cable while navigating the drive. I've had two external drives lose all data because of that flaw in the NTFS file system. The MFT exists on every drive with NTFS storage method. If that becomes corrupt, it can render the drive useless.
The drive may have power, but that quiet beeping you hear is an indication that the reader head is stuck to the platter and may be grinding into it. There is a myth (may or may not be true) that says if you put the drive in your freezer for a few minutes, take it out, drop it from 6 inches onto a hard surface, it may knock the head loose and make the drive work again.
I tried that method, and it made the situation worse for me, but it may work for you. I would resort to that option only if nothing else fixes it.
