yesterday when i connected my Hard Drive in my Laptop , suddenly it started giving me a rythymic beep sound and then after a while it stopped. the disc inside also stopped rotating and then i got the beep sound (of connecting a USB device) from my pc, but nothing was shown after that. The Hard Drive is not getting detected, tried attaching it to the Sata Port in Motherboard also but still, no use.
Ive almost 650GB of important data in it which i backed up from my PC and now all of it is in Hard Drive.
The Disk in in warranty till 2014, but guys can anyone tell me what exactly is the problem and how can i get my data back!
I certainly don't want to lose the data in anycase!

"External (especially USB-only) drive clicking or beeping at time of connection, often accompanied by non-detection problems" It is the same . Both the

Beeping is an indicator of low power. Please check the following:
Re-seat (disconnect and re-connect) the USB cable at both ends.
If the drive has an external power supply, plug the power supply directly into the wall instead of a power strip. Power strips can fluctuate power by more than 5% (maximum allowed variance for our drives). It may help to test the drive using a different power supply (if you have another with the exact same power output as the original)
If this drive does not have an external power supply, try the drive on a different main USB data port (not through any hubs). Try the drive on a different data cable if possible.
Check this article as it can have a huge impact on power output on the USB port on Windows-based systems:
