Hitachi deskstar, SATA 3.0 500gb drive just stopped showing on any pc, mac, but had never made any noises or problems previously... Please help me I have so much that I need on there, it just remains...

So, you mean it does make noises and has problems nowadays ? If it does, it probably means there's a serious problem going on at your harddisk. Making sound often refers to a bad motor or even heads, which are crashing at the silicon platters.

Maybe the harddisk does get spinning, which you will notice immediately, if you hold the HDD in your hand. The gyroscopic effect of the rotating platters makes the harddisk feel a little heavier. If there's no strange noise, then please check the datacable, if it is connected to the harddisk. If it is, you even should study the connector at the disk, when unplugged. Check if the connector is still firmly connected to the PCB(*) of the harddisk.
(*) PCB is the small printboard where all tiny electronic components are soldered to.

If this is an external harddisk, built into an USB-enclosure, you might consider to switch it to another USB-enclosure. Maybe there's a malfunction in the electronics of this USB-enclosure. If you don't have an enclosure at hand, you can still built it into your computer, for further testing.

Few questions here if you have an answer for will resolve this.

Is the system screen showing any message at the begining ?

If yes its not a problem with the monitor.

Check the Bios, if its accepting the harddisk. Initially while the system Just begins to run the bios.
If the Harddisk is detected in the Bios well and good. Else you need to check if the harddisk is connected properly to the mother board, if yes you may check if the HDD is compatible.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Installing extra hard drive

before opening cpu just confirm that the another harddisk is master or slave by going to BIOS set up or CMOS setup....

then open you cpu
see near the harddisk which is already connected ...
then do the following:
first you have to make jumper settings .. if the harddisk which is already connected is master then you must make the extra harddisk slave by shifting the jumper to next two pins .... about jumpers it will be defined on the harddisk label refer it....

. . . .
. . . .

just refer this simple dots as pins which is parallel.. ... if you want to make master then you put the jumper to this first pins parallelly if you want to make slave then put in to second pins parallely...
1. there will be one bus which is left empty parallel to the harddisk which is already connected... the bus will broad and it will be in white colour ... connect it to extra harddisk correctly...
2.there will one more parallel power supply which will be have 4 pins small one ... connect it to extra harddisk the yellow wire must be facing you....
then just switch on the pc and check in bios settings the extra harddisk is detected or not... if not you have not connected properly connect it properly...
