Default MyBook Issues

Hey! It's my second post of today! Well, I could ask like 100 more questions about my computer. But this is important. Well, I have a MyBook 500 GB and when I plug it into a power supply and i hook up the USB, it doesn't show up in windows explorer. It always used to. But now it doesn't. Can someone help me?

If it worked before and now doesn't it could be that the USB port shorted out. Check to see if the issue follows the drive by plugging it into other computers to see if it shows up. If not then either the drive is dead or the USB cable is dead (if the allocation table was messed up on the drive it would be recognized as unformatted space).
