You're beating a "dead horse". Typically this is the way external hard drives die. It could be something mechanical, or electronic. Probably something in the drive electronics has failed unless it was dropped or mishandled.

The best you can hope for now is to try to extract your data from the dead drive. I'm not sure that even recovery or repair software will work since the drive will not mount. It's possible the drive is covered under warranty. I don't know how long iOmega warrants them for but you can find out by going to their website.
