My book essential not showing up mac

I downloaded the WD Drive Utilities and that isnt even detecting a drive.

I have very important files on here from past clients that I need to get off any help or troubleshooting ideas would be great. I have tried a different cable and powersource. I also tried plugging into a different Mac and still nothing. Luckily, it showed on Disk Utility? May be for a while? Recovering data from a hard drive that flip-flops on Mac is not guarenteed.
