The drive may have failed. It is possible to test external hard drives to see if failure is the cause, but if Windows can't recognise it, the testing software may not recognise it either. Give it a try though, with Seagate SeaTools for Windows:

thank you for your reply, phil22! i finally figured it out. it turns out it had loose connection between the usb mother board and the hard disk itself. i also was using the wrong cable for it. supposed to be the one side double-ended usb cable. so it must have been under powered the whole time.
