My WD Caviar Green 2TB external HDD I bought long ago stopped working. I broke open the enclosure and put it into a different enclosure. I set up the HDD into my Rosewill RX356 enclosure and plugged it into my computer. In the device manager, it is listed as "USB Device" and it doesn't show up in my computer window and sometimes it doesn't show up at all. When I turn the drive on, it makes sharp "zeeekk zeeek" sound.  Anyone know if this is fixable?

It sounds like from what you state that the drive's spin up motor is bad/out.  In my opinion I think your out of luck unless someone else has an idea.
