Recommend you contact the Hard Drive manufacturer. No one will know more about the product than they will. I would follow their recommendations. Who is the manufacturer - NOT OF THE COMPUTER - OF THE HARD DRIVE.

    Cost would depend on who does the work and what it entails. There is no fixed scale of $ per mb, etc. That's why I recommended the manufacturer. If they say it can be done, they will likely be the most expert, and probably the cheapest for quality work. I have learned that you get what you pay for.

My hitachi external hard drive can't be found by my laptop


Hi there,
Remove it and install it into another computer to see what'll happen.
If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data on it with data recovery program to avoid losing them.
I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash and 'not recognized' issue.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
After you recover your data,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.
If the hard drive can't be detected,you can try this way.Put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer overnight. Then while it's still cold plug it into the computer and you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And run the recovery program to recover your data on it.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover data is not guaranteed.
This article will help.
