    Is it visible in disk management ?
    Right click my computer > Manage > Disk Management.

    Possibility that the drive has failed completely, or the connection to the drive inside the enclosure has gone bad. Try another enclosure (They are cheap) !
  2. before purchasing another enclosure, see if if the drive has any partitions on it. if there are partitions and they are FAT32 or NTFS you can try to scandisk it.
