Window cannot recognize removable storage


I have a internal hard drive connected to my PC using an external hard drive enclosure via USB. Previously the PC has no problem recognizing the hard drive. Today, when I connect the hard drive to the PC (via USB) it does not recognize it. The computer keeps on saying that it found a new device over and over, but the hard drive does not show up. I have checked in Device Manage and nothing show up there either. I am running Windows XP.
