Did not eject external hard drive (USB) now not showing up

Recommended Posts

I have an old HD from a MacBook Pro that I pulled and put in an enclosure to use an an external HD, I was recently copying some files over and it was unplugged without ejecting. Now when I plug it in it is not even recognized by my (or any other) computer. The light turns on meaning it is getting power but it does not show up on my computer. I do not need the data on the drive.. any recommendations for bringing this HD back to life?

Does it show up in Disk Utility?

the case is suspect, considering how inexpensive USB drive enclosures are this would be the first thing to replace. if it turns out to be a fried drive then you'll have a new case to put another drive.
