Best not to use all capitals in a post. It’s considered to be shouting and often a post will be ignored. Also makes very hard reading

If the drive is in a usb housing then more than likely to onboard usb intreface has failed, not the hard drive.

You can use a usb adapter cable to connect the drive to your computer, and then access the drive that way.

Which Transcend model is the drive unit/housing assembly etc. involved; and are you even a little happy to take the casing apart to remove the drive itself?

This is video re' how to open the housing and remove the drive.

You will need a sata to usb cable adapter. They are quite inexpensive and can be found at Amazon and other sources

I have one of these, and it works fine.
