Oh, the drive is an external USB drive? Smart info often doesn't work on
those drives. 

 

There is a small chance the drive is ok, but the USB electronics in the
external enclosure have gone bad. Since it sounds like it's out of warranty,
I would open the case and remove the drive itself and attach it directly to
a desktop computer to see if the data can be salvaged.

 

However, if gparted can see the drive, theres a good chance the drive is
dead. 

 

Good luck!
