    Numerous questions need answers before help is possible. What are you trying to connect it to? (Hardware platform, OS version/release/fix level, USB port type) Has the drive worked elsewhere? Has the USB port worked before? What have you tried to make it work? (E.g., swap cables? swap ports? other device?)

    Assuming this HDD belongs to laptop's rather not an external HDD. If yes, is it worked earlier? What happened in between? Have you updated the laptop's OS? Or by mistake, changed some hardware part? Please provide more details.

    Is it external or laptop's own HDD ? If yes, is it worked earlier? What happened in between? Have you updated the laptop's OS? Or by mistake, changed some hardware part? Please provide more details.

    If you have access to a second computer, see if the drive is recognized there. If so the issue may be with your USB port. If the drive still fails else where, the drive may have gone bad. It's happened to me a few years back with a Seagate external drive. Hopefully the drive is used for a back up and you still have the original data located on other media. In my opinion you can never have enough back ups today. The cost has com way down.
