if WINDOWS is not seeing it, this is usually an indication you have a USB issue. If you have another USB cable, swap that out and see if it is detected then. If you have another USB device, swap THAT out to see if the issue is the USB port itself. You can also try you external on another PC (friend, family member, etc) to see if it is working properly. Swap away, you will find your culprit quickly enough.

happen at work a couple of months ago. Either the USB cable is bad or the USB connector on the drive has a broken contact.. You can take the drive out of the case and attach it to a regular SATA connection inside your computer. But you might need some sort of adapter of the regular SATA data and power connections are not present on the drive itself..
