You do realize that formatting will wipe all the files on the drive?

Go the Disk Management and attempt to format the partition from there. If Windows doesn't recognize the partition type then simply delete the partition and recreate it. Then format using NTFS.

I assume that means you didn't see the drive listed there either? Regardless of how the hard drive is formatted or not, it should appear in Disk Management. If it isn't then there may be something wrong with it.

Is the drive USB powered or does it have an AC power adapter?

The enclosure should also be listed in Device Manager, even if the drive were dead. Check there too. Should be listed under USB devices.
