Far wiser techs than I are going to ask you for details, such as external USB? HD enclosure? NTFS [GPT or MBR]? I had a couple of flash sticks that suddenly refused to flash [work] anymore. I sure hope your HD can be brought back to life w/o reformatting. Can you attach to another computer? If so, what happens? Exactly what error message [if any] do you get?
