Can you access the data from another machine?
If not then your USB device has become corrupted.

Doesn't look good.  :-(

There are a plenty of software utilities to recover the data from a USB device, however, i have not used any of them so cannot advice you on what is the best option.

I think you are in the situation that anything is better than nothing, so would recommend you review the software's customer reviews until you are comfortable with the software before running/installing it.

i would open the enclosure, and hook the disk directly to the ide/sata port.
this will show if the disk is bad or not (can be the enclosure)
if the disk is accessable, you can copy your data.
if needed, here some recovery links (check if the disk is seen in the bios)
