Ok let me give you a breakdown on what happens to these drives.
!. Bad a/c power source
2. Bad usb to sata controller card inside the unit
3. Bad usb cable.
Ok try another usb cable and or power supply source, if that does not work your going to need to take the drive out of the external case and ether purchase a new case or put this unit into a computer to access the data (Mac's can be a issue here because of the complex detail on installing a drive inside them. You can buy a external case from amazon.com for around $35 bucks.
But if your hard drive is not clicking or making horrible noises then the chances are the data on it is safe and you will have a safe extraction of the hard drive and it can go into another case. Now if you hear it clicking and all kinda of funny noises then the hard drive would not be use-able and therefore crashed (nothing you can do at this point)
Trust me I done this with a western digital my book and have had major success with extracting the drive I even got a tip on fixya how to do it.
