Toshiba K2518A External Drive Stopped workin

By dinashafey ·
I was using my external drive today and Plugged in a flash drive and all of a sudden my external drive stopped working. I traditionally made a motor running sound and now sounds like its trying to rev but not going anywhere. When I plug it in the computer will recognize something but no drive (G,H,E etc). Please help Sooo many memories on my drive

remove the drive and all power to it, let it sit for a few minutes while you reboot your machine. Second, try reinstalling it's drivers if it has any. Thirdly, try different power and USB (I'm assuming it's an external usb drive?) cables. Try it on a friends computer or another computer around you.
