How to Recover Data from Not Recognized SAS Drive?

Hi guys, I am using 500GB SAS hard drive from past 1 year. I don’t know what the problem is, today when I connected it to my system Windows doesn’t show me the disk when I clicked on “My Computer”. Again I removed that drive from port and tried many times but finally ended up with unrecognized error message. My hard drive is held with lot of crucial data. Does anyone face this kind of problem, please suggest me how to restore data from undetected SAS hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.
