  1. Try plugging it into another computer! If it does not work then it has gone bad unless you have a bad cable. Based on what drive it is then there is a slim possibility that it is the enclosure and the drive can be pulled out and used as a internal drive.
    Lesson learned is always have two copies of important data like your life, hard drive failure is a common thing!
