See this thread: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum...

If none of the suggested fixes work, extract the drive from its enclosure and buy a third-party enclosure for it.

Can you see the external HDD in "Computer"? If so can you see Format when you right click on it?

What does it say about it in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc in Run box)?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
