First try connecting to another machine.

 

Second you can try removing the drive from the enclosure and connecting it to your machine with a USB to SATA/IDE adapter

 

If that doesn't work you'll probably need professional help.  I can recommend Kroll Ontrack, but it will most likely cost you  over $1,000, but they normally can recover the data.

Sometimes moisture can also lead to hang up or make a running HDD not working anymore for a while. My suggestion is to let you give few min to days for let it fix automatically either may be few internal short circuit will bring some terrible results. If you still won't get you HDD fix than you may go through Quick Recovery for let get at least your data then only you can make a repair.
