1: Try to connect the disk to another computer and see how it works there.

2: As a safety measure, if the disk is operable between restarts, backup your data to another media.

3: USB disks are essentially IDE disks enclosed in a box having IDE to USB converter. As a last resort the disk can be taken out of the enclosure and installed on another computer as an IDE drive, enabling backup or recovery of the data.
