WD external hard wont pick up on pc

Hey everyone.

Hope someone could help me please???

I have a wd 2.5tb hard drive(usb and powered plug in) that my computer wont pick up…
I am running off windows 7

Oky so the problem is that it doesnt pick up anywhere on my pc ex: computer,disk management or device manager…

If i just plug in the power supply of the ex-HD nothing happens. 
But when i plug in the usb into the pc and ex-HD the light flashes and the ex-HD starts up. 
After a min or so the hard drive stop moving but light still flashes and it stays like that till you unplug the power supply.

I have taken it out of its casing and plug the hard drive directly into a tower computer…

Is there anyone that can help me recover the data on the hard drive or make it work? please and thank you…
