If you are having trouble with the drive it is possible that the USB controller on the drive failed but the drive its self should be fine.
I would try the drive on another computer to see if it detects properly. Sometimes if the drive gets stopped improperly this can cause detection propblems but connecting it to another computer will force a scan of the drive that will repair any corrupted files that may be on the drive. Also check to see if the drive shows in disk management. The links below will show you how to check this.

If the drive does not show up in disk management and the drive is not in warranty I would recommend opening the drive and connecting it directly to your computer to access the data.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
