Try another pc or if that fails,go into device manager see if there is any exclamation marks in the usb contoller list,uninstall the said item exclemation item restart pc without plugging in your external drive,once it restartes let the pc settle down (HD light not burbling away)then plug in your drive and see if it works.I've been known to uninstall all usb controllers and just start my pc.
