Doesn't look promising from where I sit. Did you leave out any possible contributing factors (ie, dropped it)? If not, it appears that the access has been truly lost/damaged because it looks like it has reverted back to a non-initialized state. At this point, I'm afraid to make any specific suggestions because the data could be lost. So, if you need to find a way to recover the data, maybe someone with a Passport can step in and see if they know something specific to suggest. Good luck.

I can only report what I see in disk management. I cannot tell you how your hard drive became inaccessible.
