  1. Keep your email address in the message if you want to receive junk mails.

    The first action would be to use Seagate's diagnostic tool:

    If Seatools doesn't detect the disk, you may check the cable, the host (swap the ports), power cable...

    And if the disks is really dead, you may either hope it's the controller (=the printed circuit, often the case if the disk isn't detected) and replace it with one taken from a working disk of exactly the same model.

    Or you can pay a specialized company to recover your data. Not exactly cheap, depending on the operation.
