Fixya has received a growing number of USB connected Hard disk failures in recent months. It would appear they are a poor backup device, at least over the long term.
A couple of possibilities: First, disassemble the drive enclosure, and check the connections to the drive itself. I've seen one instance where an internal connection was just loose enough to cause a problem.
2. You could try removing the hard disk from the enclosure, and installing it as a second drive in a standard desktop PC. Interfaces must of course match- assuming it is an IDE interface, install it in a desktop with that drive connect system.
Master/slave jumpers must be also set correctly.
After this, using the drive management tool in Computer Management, try mounting the drive.
Beyond this, data recovery could be difficult at best. There are data recovery services available, but such is fairly pricey. You will have to decide just how valuable your missing data is.

when you power up the computer press F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then go to usb option and enable usb 2.0 legacy. then save settings .
some times usb speed make issue so try this.
Also check your usb cable working fine try with other usb cable.
Also check harddisk jumper settings.
If still face problems then you need to repair it.
You shuold take it to service shop becasue you try with 10 computers and all gives same error then your harddisk has hardware issue.
try above solution .
Thanks for using fixya.

This is a solution I have used in the past and it has worked. It's a Seagate Recover utility for end users.
If the data is absolutley critical and very valuable, you can send it to Seagate and they are very good at recovery as well. It gets a little pricey at $800, but I too have had to use that as well for mission critical data I could not afford to lose.
