The drive may have failed. Test it with SeaTools for Windows: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

If the test gives a "failed" result (Long test), it may just be the converter-board within the drive enclosure that has failed. Try to remove the drive and buy a third-party external enclosure for it.
