What make is the drive?

Is it a drive you bought and put into an external housing yourself, or did it arrive already housed?

Have you tested it in each USB port on your computer?

Try blowing air into the USB port(s) - use a can of compressed air. And maybe, using a something like a wooden toothpick, gently probe inside the ports on the computer to remove possible dirt - but do the can of air and test routine.

Also test the USB ports using another device (e.g.) a flash drive/memory stick). and if possible with each of the cables used for your drive. Do this test first, in order to confirm the USB ports are ok (or not).

If it is drive unit it’s possible it’s the housing input port has failed, but the drive self is ok. If so then it may be possible to rehouse the drive; but “we” need to know make etc. of your external drive unit itself - as requested earlier.
