First check if your WD is running (spinning), no matter if the blue light is on. Can you hear it close with your ear, or feel vibrations on your hand when it starts.
If it runs, then check/replace the USB cable you are using with another.
Check the Power supply if it gives necessary power.
If you are familliar with disassembling/assembling, then open and remove the HDD from the box and try to connect the disc directly to your PC (using another HDD Data/Power cables).
If it runs, and you can acces it, then something is wrong with the Box.
If it doesn't, then the HDD is broken or damaged.
Please note that if your device is under warranty, DO NOT open the box ! Contact your seller for service/replacement instructions.

Thanks for all the info, it really helps us help you when we have the full picture.
The Seagate drive you are seeing is the hard drive inside the Lacie Enclosure. The fact it is showing up in disk management is a good sign for getting your files back. The fact that it shows as empty with no format type listed means that either the partition was deleted or damaged. This would be akin to loosing the microfishe in your local library. All the data is likely still on the drive but windows has no way of knowing what is there or where it is.
In either case the data can generally be recovered by a pro with speciallized software. In some cases you can do this yourself with similiar, less expensive software but I always warn Askers that this software requires significant knowledge to operate and you cannot recover the files back to the same drive therefor you must have another drive with at least double the space free of the data on the drive to do it yourself.
Let me know which approach would suit you better, if you choose the do it yourself method I can suggest software for <$100 that you can try but it carries inherent risk of damaging the data if you make any mistakes. f you choose to have a pro do this for you reply with your Country, State and City and I will recommend someone for you. For this type of failure recovery varries but usually runs $150-$500 depending on the volume of data you have.
In either case DO NOT format the drive or attempt to use it for anything in the mean time as every operation that writes to the drive runs the risk of overwriting your data and rendering it unretrievable.
Hope this Helps FixYa,
