It was working fine the other day and it has not been physically damaged, but it doesn't show up on my, or any computer. Can this be fixed, or does anyone know how I can retrieve the data?

additional: the light on the hard drive comes on when it's plugged in, but it makes a beeping noise (which it never used to).

Can you see your HDD in BIOS? If it is seen by BIOS than you have every chance to recover your data. There are tons of good and free software to do the job.

The beeping noise is a worrying factor. It could be a mechanical failure noise.
