Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi, I purchased a Seagate 500G External Firewire HD for Mac back in early Nov. A couple of days ago I turned it on and the familiar icon wouldn't appear on my desktop. Have tried unplugging and restarting but no luck. Have got tons of photos etc. stored on it that I really don't want to lose! Any suggestions on how to retrieve my files? Thank you for your help! Marley
