Seagate GoFlex external HDD now recognized as internal HDD

Specs: Windows 7
My Sea Agent Go Flex External hard drive suddenly stopped working a couple of days ago.
It wasn't dropped, there were no spills on it. It was simply attempting to load a file when suddenly it gave in. The drive attempts to load up with a small 'beep'-type noise every 20 seconds for about a minute before stopping.
It shows up under my computer as 'local disk', and therefore the files can't be accessed, however under control panel it still shows up under its full name.

Any ideas if there's something to be salvaged here? Quite a lot of files I need on it!
Thanks!

Try RECUVA.

It can take hours to run if "all files" are selected.
Try to recover the type of files most valuable first.

How is the drive listed in Windows Disk Management? Post all the information listed there for that disk.

Beep sound is not a good thing about external hardware.
Did you use this in any other pc?
If not then try it.

Thanks for replying guys.
It's not even a proper beeping sound so much as the sound of a disc trying (but evidently failing) to load. Sorry kind of hard to describe!

In disk management it shows up as 'Sea Agent GoFlex Pro', as it did in My Computer before the problems started.

But what else does it say about it in Disk Management? Things like Layout, Type, File System, Status, Capacity, Free space?
