Connect the drive to a different computer and see if you can access it.
NO, didn't work. Connected it to another laptop and my computer didnt recognize that I had anything attached.
Shut your computer down, disconnect the drive and boot up again. When the computer has finished booting up, shut down, connect the drive again, make sure the power supply to the drive is connected and switched on, then boot up again. Windows should recognise the drive as a new device.
Will try this one after I post this message.
If the drive is connected by a USB cable, try a different USB port, preferably one on the back panel of your computer. Also try a different cable. Make sure the cable is less than 2 metres long as this can sometimes have an adverse effect on a peripheral.
Tried to a different cable, computer still didn't recognize it.
