Disk did not eject properly. Then I was unable to see the disk. I shut down several time without success. I removed the disk and remounted it without success. Any help?

This sometimes happens when a disk is not ejected properly. How old is the external disk and is it still under warranty?

Does the disk appear in the sidebar of Disk Utility?
