My HP BB07 external hard drive does not get detected under Windows Explorer. This hard drive is also not getting detected in another computer and a different external HD is getting detected on both those computers - which implies its not the computer, port or all hard drive issue. The issue seems to be only with that particular HD - hope its not broken.
When I go to Disk Management it comes up as unknown and not initialized (Disk 1). I get following message when I start Disk Management.

On pressing OK I get “The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.”

Also, the Volume tab looks like following:

Can anyone please let me know what needs to be done here so that the hard disk can be detected?
