  1. Hi there Erikittysajan,

    Unfortunately, it is possible that your drive has failed.

    I guess you can try something simple as just attaching it with a different USB cable to a different system.
    In case the issue persists and the data stored on it is crucial, it may be a good idea to contact a data recovery company.

    You can try accessing it with some data recovery tool as well: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-1644496/lost-data-recovery.html
