Outside the enclosure, remove the drive from the enclosure, connect it directly to a computer, see if that works. If it does not work then either, the drive is bad.

Did you try it on another computer? Or another cable?

If it's in warranty contact AData first as opening the enclosure would void the warranty. But may save your data.
