Hi akaash,

I assume that you are referring to a USB/Firewire external HDD. If so,
simply turn the power off on the drive, wait a few seconds, and then power it
back up. This should cause Vista to redetect it. If this does not work after
a few attempts, then it could be a faulty interface board in the enclosure,
in which case you will need to replace it. Before you do anything, have you
considered simply replacing the USB (or Firewire) cable?
