Hi Arijeet,

I strongly recommend you to test the drive on another PC and with another USB cable. Can you feel the drive vibrating? If the drive is not recognized even on another PC, unfortunately it may have failed. Test it on a Linux PC too. You may have slightly better chances there. Have you got important data stored on the drive? If you do, check the link below. I leave some data recovery tools suggestions.

Hope this helps
