The poster is running a mac. I don't know how to check on a mac.

Opening the enclosure will void your warranty. I wouldn't recommend doing it.

Did the drive previously work on that same computer? New external drives may not be formatted. On a Windows machine, at least, the drive may not show in the normal places under those conditions.

If you have improperly removed the drive while it was still writing the MBR can get corrupted and the drive will not be readable. That doesn't mean the drive is broken.

I am moving this thread to the mac forum.
