    Sometimes the SATA-to-USB electronics within the external hard drive's enclosure fail. When this happens it is often fairly easy to remove the hard drive from the enclosure, connect it directly to a SATA connection in a PC and then have access to the files on the hard drive.

    What is the make and model number of your external hard drive?
