Computer Hardware Help, PLEASE !

I am excited about the election, sorry to throw this into the mix.

My external HD, which I use for back-up, died. It sounds like a sick animal. You can actually hear the hard drive trying to whir. There is something physically wrong with it -- I think that I can ship it back to the company, and they will replace it, but that is not my primary concern. 

The problem is, is that my external HD is a total back-up of my computer. There's nothing life threatening on it, but it is a back-up of all of my files. I don't know how to wipe the HD clean, since I can't get any computer to acknowledge its presence. No USB port recognizes it.

I don't know what to do. I thought perhaps I should find some machine shop and have them drill holes through the unit to stop anyone from trying to read any of the data on the hard drive.

Again, it's a sick machine, it sounds sick, and because of this, I can't get any computer to identify it.

HELP!

Thanks in Advance.........................
