external hardrive not showing on my computer

I've got a western digital,My book 250GB hardrive.
It worked fine until the other day when I plugged it in and nothing happened on the host PC (XP).
I've tried it on a vista system and it doesn't show up there either.
It shows up in the "remove hardware" window and in properties it says everything is working correctly.
I've tried uninstalling the drivers and plugging it back in so the system is forced to re install it, no joy. Any ideas??

"...and nothing happened..."

Did you look in My Computer - or Explorer - to see if had appeared. If previously connected, and Autoplay is disabled, then you may not see anything actually happen. It my just appear as an available drive.
