Unfortunately, this usually means you have some type of hardware problem. If you hear the drive spin up and just never connect to the computer, you are in better shape than most. The usual tricks to get around this are as follows:

  • Plug it into a different USB port, preferably on in a different part of the computer. The motherboard's USB hub might have flaked out.
  • Unplug it from the computer over night and try again later on. You may have tripped a thermal fuse on the USB line and sometimes they take a bit to reset.
  • If that fails, then remove the disk from the enclosure and hook it up to a machine with a free port. If you don't have one, I use Aprocorn DriveWire 3-in-one Disk interface to get on loose hard disks.
Unfortunately, there's really not much that can be done other than this. Good luck.

Connect it to another computer to see if it works.
If it does not work reseat the hard drive connectors in the hard drive case to make sure the connections are secure.
If you cannot hear the hard drive spin when you connect the power then the hard drive maybe faulty.

MY TOSHIBA HARD DISK MK3265GSX 320GB CANNOT DETECT TTO MY PC


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
