Depending upon the "age" of the drive, internal to the USB enclosure, it will have either a SATA or PATA connections. If it were mine, I'd dissasemble the enclosure and install the drive in a computer as a second drive, and then extract the data. Of course that won't help if the drive itself is defective, but there's a good chance it's the USB electronics, or even the power connector (inside the enclosure).

use the source (pc/Mac) that created the data to remove it.
you will need to re-format to get it to work on the machine you are currently trying to use.
