Windows 7: Seagate 1TB Expansion Drive is not being recognized on my laptop

Seagate 1TB Expansion Drive is not being recognized on my laptop

My Seagate Expansion drive is not being recognized on my laptop or any other computer that I have tried to put it on. It worked for a while

It is fairly new and I have about 500gb on it so far and I don't want to lose any of my data because most of it is my university files.

I don't know why this is happening and I also can't even change the drive letter, I really don't know much about computers but this forum seems to help people, hope someone can help me Please.
Thank you.

My expansion drive is still not being recognized and a few of my friends said that this happens with a lot of seagate drives and this is really starting to make me mad because I paid $170 for it and only used it once.

I am a student so I need everything that is on it. Please someone help!!! I'm not really good with computers either so I'm extra frustrated!
