Hi Joy, and Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

Is this a secondary HDD used for data, and not the operating system?
Until you find out exactly what the problem is, DON'T format or partition it, or write any data to it.

With it connected to your computer, go to Disk Management (right click on My Computer, Manage, Computer Management. In the lower left area click on Disk Management).

Could you please upload a screenshot of this Disk Management dialog box (use Photobucket or ImageShack)(copy & paste the forums url - usually starts with Img) to your post here, so we can see exactly what has gone wrong, and how best to correct it.

See if you can take a screenshot of that Disk Management dialog box, and upload it, then post the link, so we can see exactly what's going on.
If not, we can do it the "words" way, but a picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.

Hi Joy,

Don't see a screenshot of your Disk Management. Might try again. If you use photobucket or imageshack, copy and paste the
Otherwise, what color is the band above the Volume Info column? And does it say NTFS, or RAW, or Unallocated?" alt="" class="imgLz frmImg " />

Use Recuva --- run it on your computer that is connected with this hard drive for restoring back your data. Get it here: http://www.piriform.com/recuva
If that one doesn't make a difference, you could try another free drive recovery tool: REDACTED - SS
If all of these methods don't work, you may consult data recovery company or expert and prepare to pay much money for it.
Therefore, you need to keep all your important photos, videos, songs and other files backed up on different places.
