Fixya has received a growing number of USB connected Hard disk failures in recent months. It would appear they are a poor backup device, at least over the long term.
A couple of possibilities: First, disassemble the drive enclosure, and check the connections to the drive itself. I've seen one instance where an internal connection was just loose enough to cause a problem.
2. You could try removing the hard disk from the enclosure, and installing it as a second drive in a standard desktop PC. Interfaces must of course match- assuming it is an IDE interface, install it in a desktop with that drive connect system.
Master/slave jumpers must be also set correctly.
After this, using the drive management tool in Computer Management, try mounting the drive.
Beyond this, data recovery could be difficult at best. There are data recovery services available, but such is fairly pricey. You will have to decide just how valuable your missing data is.
