    If it’s an external drive try connecting a different cable and/or plug it into another computer (even taking out out the cable you have and reconnecting it can help). If it comes up use disk utility to verify and repair it, it may find some glitch on it, or it may just be a temporary thing.

    Worse case if the drive is not accessing but is still spinning up (important) call around for a local shop that can copy the drive off to another for you. If your in Los Angeles, digital difference in Pasadena can do it for you. This is the main reason I stick with drives that are reliable (mostly seagate, but G-drives have worked well for me too).

    if you're concerned with recovering data, definitely do not write data to the drives or format it, if you can help it. I might see if you can run some kind of SMART test. What does disk utility in mac show under SMART status (bottom left of the disk utility screen, i think)?
