Is it still under warranty?
Try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer.
Try connecting it to a USB port on a different computer.
If it still is not detected, then either exercise the warranty,
or disassemble the case, to find two major parts:
* a disk-drive
* a USB-to-disk-drive adapter
Disconnect the disk-drive and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if it is recognized, i.e., if it was the USB-to-disk-drive adapter that has failed.
If it still is not recognized, then it is "dead". You could buy a similar disk-drive, install it into the enclosure, and thus create another external storage device.

It is due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.
It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset. Just drag the files/ folder to the iReset and it would change the folder attributes to normal and you would be able to view the files normally.
Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!
