It sounds like the drive may have suffered damage when you turned it off before ejecting. It may have been writing to the disk at the time. By damage I don't mean the physical type although that can also happen.

If Disk Warrior could not see the drive, then it must be serious.

By the way, what kind of drive is it and how is it formatted?

All your data is probably still intact on the drive. What I suggest is software that can access the data and remove it from the drive. One of the best at doing that is Data Rescue 3. You might want to download a trial version first to see if it will work before buying it. The cost is $99.
