Hi , recently i just connected my external 2.5 inch Hhd , using its stock usb Y cable. In my computer it showed localdisk f, but when i opened it , a progress bar at top started which never stopped . No window opened when i clicked properties , format, scan , disk management etc but these all windows opens up as soon i unplug the hhd. I also tried removing the case . Indicator blinks and hhd makes a bit sound as usual .also i tried on my laptop .

Did you wait awhile/for long enough for Windows Explorer to index it so that Windows Explorer could display the contents, folders and files? I have an internal data harddrive that seems to take a minute for it to be indexed properly and the contents displayed (1TB drive).
