Question about Western Digital Caviar WD2500BB 250 GB Hard Drive
Does you drive make any sounds like these?
If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it.
If not - try to remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to recover your files.

I had the same issue. Its not a power issue because it shows up in device manager. Heres what I did.
Right-click on my computer and click Manage>Disk Management
Your drive should show up there. Right-click on it. If explore is not grayed out, assign a drive letter to it and you should then be bale to see it in my computer.
In my case explore was grayed out. I had to click on the option to format the drive. After re-formatting the passport explore was available. I then assigned a drive letter to it and I have access again.
I guess somehow using it on multiple computers srcewed up the file-system on it. I was using it between windows and linux.
This fixed my problem.
