si el disco no te lo reconoce el bios de la PC al arrancar entonces tienes problemas con este ... causas: conector en mal estado IDE o USB conector de alimentación(debes de sentir el disco girando) si el disco hace unos tic tic tic y no termina de arrancar entonces adios hdd.
si hace tiempo que no lo usas la humedad pudo hacer gala de las suyas.. dale un golpe seco por un costado... !!!nunca por encima ni debajo¡¡¡
a veces están trabados y esto les devuelve la vida...
debes de revisar, si te lo detecta el bios, si mantiene las particiones.. te recomiendo primero instales el prartition magic y trates de ver si está presente bajo win xp.. eso si es que aranca..
puedes también verlo por msdos con el comando fdisk para revisar el particionado y formato del mismo..
si perdió el formato o el particionado.. sin miedo vuelve a particionar y formatear al formato de origen.. ntsf o fat 32.. luego con un programa recuperador..(myrecovery) puedes volver a tener vuestra información...
ufff suerte que fue en español.. dime lo que no entiendas y trataré de ayudarte..

The HDD is probably in working condition, however the enclosure may be damaged. You can remove the hdd inside the cavalry storage enclosure, and if you have a desktop install it in the desktop to get your data off of it. You may instead wish to purchase a new hdd enclosure which can be bought online from many websites such as http://ncix.com or newegg.com
An external storage-device has four major components:
* the USB cable
* the power-adapter
* the disk-drive inside the enclosure
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.
One of these components has failed.
Try a different USB cable.
Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.
Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.
Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.
Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.
Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.
Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.
Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- you can buy a new W.D. device, through the W.D. web-site, at a significant discount.
try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files. http://www.asoftech.com/adr/
you got corrup because of not properly ejecting of hdd.. okay.. try to connect again then rigth click the hdd then properties, tools, click the check now.. select all.. dont intirup it until done.. if desconnect the hdd will be damage at all..
Could it be a power issue? Some older laptop HDs need more power than one USB port can provide and won't spin up properly. If you have a cable with your HD enclosure which had two USB connectors on the end, make sure you plug both into ports on your laptop.
When they don't spin up correctly, you tend to hear them clicking as they try to spin & then cut out. Have a listen to it when you plug it in & see what you can hear.
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.
