If it a fresh new hard drive, then you will need to partition it and format it before you can access it. Does it show up in bios? If it does then you know that it is hooked up correctly. Might just need to partition it and format it. If this dont help, then let me know what kinda of OS you are using.

Seagate FreeAgent, 500 GB p/n 9nk2al-510 stopped working


There's not much troubelshooting you can do with a failed external disk. power off PC and hd and then disconnect all cables, wait 30 secs, power the PC on, let it boot to the OS, power the hard drive on and then connect. If the drive shows up but you still cannot access it or get weird property readings, it generally means the hd controller has failed. If the data's worth more than $1000, you can take it to a data recovery group like Ontrak or Cherry Systems, but otherwise, just get a new hd and restore whatever backups you have.

The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 300 Gb - power problem


it really all depends on how far the damage is. I have swapped the controller board on a hard drive that had failed with one from an identical drive and was able to retrive the data. This is not a very common thing that works. Your data is most likly still entact on the platters. However, if the motor is damaged it would require expert and very expensive help to recover the data.

If you have access to being able to swap controllers then try it. This may get your data back.

SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED


Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..
