I can't access my samsung external hard drive. please please help

Hi, everyone.
I have a samsung s2 500 GB hard drive. It was working until yesterday, now I can't seem to access this.
Here's the problem. When I plug it in, it doesn't show the SAMSUNG(P but only "local disk(P". It shows that I should format it.)
Also, every time I try to right-click the local disk(P, it only ends up to not responding.

I tried changing renaming it, but still nothing. I checked if it is installed properly, and it does.
There is also no ticking sound in the disk inside, and the light is also lit up.
Please help me, there are so many important files inside and I hope it will not end up being formatted.
