Sadly, I think you need to return the drive, sounds like it or the controler is bad.

At the Apple Icon at top left>About this Mac, report the version of OSX from that window, then click on More Info, then click on Hardware>USB, does it show there?

 

PS. I never trust drives powered simply by USB.
