Question about Western Digital Elements powered by WD 320 GB External USB (WDE1U3200N) Hard Drive
Despite the lack of information what you have provided sounds like a failed drive or drive enclosure.
As a rule, either the enclosure or drive circuitry failing will cause this type of issue. Also driver problems can simulate this type of failure. So, to correct the problem, first try the drive on a second computer. If it works there the driver is simply corrupt on your system, report back and I can give you detailed instructions.
Second, if it doesn't work on the other computer, try taking it to your local computer store and asking them to test the hard drive in a different enclosure. If it works, buy the enclosure and you're done.
Finally, if neither of those works, you will likely need a data recovery pro, again respond back including your country, state and city and I can refer you to a nearby facility.
Hope this helps Fixya,
