Question about SimpleTech 250GB USB2.0 7200 RPM External 250 GB IDE Hard Drive
I have an external Signature 500gb that I cannot get my data from anymore. The Drive shows up in Vista and when checking it under Hardware is says it is working fine. 0gb free 0gb storage.
It just worked yesterday, when I restarted the computer today it didn't.
Drive spins up, blue lights flash and no data.
Right click on MY COMPUTER and select MANAGE.
Go to DEVICE MANAGER and expand the DISK DRIVES category on the right side window.
You should see the Simpletech drive listed under there. Delete the Simpletech drive and click on OK. Restart the computer.
Windows should re-detect the simpletech and re-install the built in drivers automatically.

Did you try disconnecting and reconnecting? or diconnect it from usb, restart and reconnect. or connecting it to a different usb port.
give it some 30 seconds at least before you reconnect; electronics do not appreciate the current spikes and temperature diferences hot-cold-hot if you turn them on and off too fast.
try it in another pc if you can( if it does not work after all this, i would suspect it fried) or have the store test it if, they do that where you bought it( still under warranty period?)
