    I have Samsung 500 GB external Hard drive. Suddenly my hard drive was not detected by my laptop. It is detecting other 16 GB USB drives and data cards. When i plug in I am not getting any message or nothing is happening. My OS vista 64-bit

    Have you tried it on other machines? Did it get bumped? Is it spinning? Does it show up in Device Manager?
