Has it fallen under your desk? :-)

And now for a more serious answer, is it shown in Disk management?

does it require a power supply and is it switched on?

I suspect not enough power. Can you connect it through a powered usb hub or can you get one of these - click here a usb lead with an extra connector for more power.

it has a power supply and the voltage is ok.

have a look in device manager under USB devices it may not be detecting the USB adaptor.

does the drive work in another PC or laptop?

Engaged in data recovery work, encountered a lot of cases, some hard drives are not bad, even if the file system and partition table are not damaged, but need usb charge for a long time, windows system often do not wait enough time, so let Users mistakenly believe that the hard disk is damaged, but in the mac system, as long as waiting for enough time, do not need to repair the hard disk. Do not need data recovery software, you can access the data. According to experience, on such a simple way, can avoid a lot of blind repair
