Question about Hard Drives
My computer doesn,t noticed it through USB!
I had this problem - flashing light, disk not recognised - and found it was the power supply that was at fault. It turns out that failure of LaCie transformers is very common; they will replace faulty units.

Most of the time its the pcb which is responsible for not detection of hd in any system
also one should take into account
1 cables should be good
2 powersupply should be good
3 controller card should not be faulty.
4 any primary master slave conflict should be solved.
the suggestions in 1 2 3 4 are essential before testing a hard drive.
later a bootable cd or floppy drive helps to make us do a scandisk
or a fdisk .
if fdisk reports no hdd or fixed disks then one should be vigilant that the drive may have been lost mbr or boot recotds

if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
if this fails to fix the problem check the usb leads inside your computer usually
usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts
hope this helps you
