I run a karaoke from my laptop and accidently pluged my cable that i use for the laptop into my external hard drive. So i presume that the surge of power knocked it out. There was no bang or smoke or anything like that it just stopped working. The light on the hard drive didnt light up and it wasn't showing up on My Computer.Have i knackered it up completly or is there a way to retrieve all my 40,000 songs. thank you.

An external hard drive is a regular hard drive...inside an enclosure.

Can you easily open your enclosure...remove the hard drive...and attach it directly to your motherboard?

The enclosure may have been effected by your mistake, not necessarily the drive itself.
