try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.

Make sure all power and data usb connections have dust free
secure seatings.

Gather your supplies.

There are commercial kits available, but a can of compressed
air, a lint-free cloth or wipes, mild dishwashing liquid, and a vacuum cleaner
with a soft brush are all you really need for a basic cleaning.

After turning off your computer and unplugging your
keyboard, gently shake the keyboard upside down over some newspaper to dislodge
loose crumbs and particles.

Use the can of compressed air to blow a stream of air
between the keys. Repeat Step 2.

Dampen a lint-free cloth with a diluted solution of
dishwashing liquid and water to wipe down the keys.

Use the vacuum cleaner brush attachment to suck away any
remaining dirt or debris.

If you have a membrane-type keyboard (it doesn\'t have a
spring under each key) and the keys are truly grungy, you can remove the keys
with a small screwdriver and use cotton swabs and 90% isopropyl alcohol to get
it sparkling clean

If you are still feeling industrious, next you can tackle
cleaning your mouse

Of course, if cleaning your keyboard seems a truly
undesirable task, you can always buy one for around $20.

or if you want a quick cleaning method

Try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower
from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

Dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its

LaCie Computers... | Answered on May 21, 2013

See clicking, grinding or any unwanted type of noise is a clear indication of physical hard drive failure so, if you have very important data stored in your drive then you should take an immediate assistance from the data recovery professional. In physical hard drive failure you shouldn't delay as it can damage your hard drive more severely and can make you to loose your data for for forever. But if you consult a data recovery expert on time for sure you will be able to save and get back your data. If any other query drop a reply.

Check to make sure that the FireWire or USB cables are
correctly attached and firmly seated in both the drive and
computer's FireWire or USB ports. Disconnect them, wait 30
seconds, and reconnect them. If the drive is still not
recognized, restart your computer and try again. If they are
correctly connected and your drive still does not power on,
trying using the optional power sharing cable, described in
section 2.3 Connecting the Optional Power Supply of the LaCie Mobile Hard Drive User Manual.

Probably due to sleep mode. The computer will power off things such as USB ports. You can disable "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" under Power Management tab in Device Manager on each "USB Root Hub". Not sure if there is an equivalent on Mac
