Wd 2500bmv not recognized by windows browser in xp but recognized by device mana

Hello,
In last 2-3 days my external mobile hard drive WD 2500bmv won't show in Windows browser but it does show in Device Manager.
It doesn't show in Disk management either.
XP Sp3, external device is full of data that I'd like to have.
Reinstalled driver for it, disconnected/reconnected numerous times, chkdsk done for C: drive only 'cause it can't be seen by XP.
It doesn't show on my other laptop either with Windows 7.
Populate button doesn't bring any info under Properties button in Device Manager.
Any suggestion?
