    Is it not spinning up, or is it spinning but not reading?

    Getting this option can often be a symptom of a failing drive. Have you tried on different ports or on another pc?

    Sounds like a bad drive. What brand of hard drive is it? You can run a diagnostic using the drive makers diagnostic utility.

    If it's an external start with a different USB cable, I've had those die on me and give weird issues but the drive itself be fine.
