Question about Western Digital WD Caviar Blue WD1600AAJS hard drive 160 GB SATA300 SATA II
Try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

Yes,you can easily recover data by using a data recovery program.
Try this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus corrupted partitions,ect.

Good day EAHMED
If the drive makes lot of sound , this means mechanical damage and you must fear your data are gone for ever due to the several recovery attempts .
You could still try connecting the device right inside a healthy computer , strait to the motherboard .
You could also try a recovery tool , from here for instance http://www.geckoandfly.com/3163/crashed-hard-drive-hard-disk-data-recovery-software-tools-and-service/
If this still does not work consider taking your device to a recovery office but you need to know if your data are worth the cost price . It's very very expensive .
Best regards .

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
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 even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of
the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an
end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will
fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin
type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical
extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives
need to have current go through make sure these drives are working hope this
helps also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your
computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely
sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer
also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they
are securely seated
hope this helps
