GTech hard drive broken and need to copy and backup data from it

If you can hook it up as a secondary drive on your mac you should be able to boot up off your main drive and then look into the secondary and transfer over the contents you want. The drive has to be recognized by the computer bios, if not recognized then the hard drive logic board is toast.

Bad news is that it is possible that your attempts to repair may have permanently trashed the unit - than can also happen so be prepared for the worst.

My G-tech Gmini 500g won't mount on the desktop but it mounts on disk utility.

Hi, if you can see the drive in Disk Utility, is the volume appear greyed out? If so, then it sounds like the directory has been damaged, which usually is caused by disconnecting a drive improperly or losing power. DiskWarrior is a utility that can often repair a damaged directory and allow the drive to mount.

My MAC is not recognizing or connecting to the G-RAID external hard drive anymore, it was working till yesterday night. The power is on in the drive. I have rebooted the computer twice but the G-Raid icon...

Can you hear the drive spinning? If not, then you may want to check the power supply. You can also try different ports and cables, or try it on another computer. Another possibility is that the directory is damaged, and DiskWarrior can often repair the directory and allow the drive to mount.

Hard drive freezes constantly and freezes computer

Perform diagnostics on hard drive to see if the issue is cause by it. If drive checks out fine then the problem is with the OS needing repair.
