But, I suspect you probably have a hardware problem (power adapter failing, USB to SATA chipset in the enclosure failing, etc.).

Well, I finally removed the drive from the Lacie enclosure. It's a 1TB Seagate Baracuda.

I plugged into a free SATA port and ran the Seagate tools. They would recognized the drive OK but would not allow me to do anything -- most attempted operations produced an error to the effect of "The drive is not responding to ATA commands".

So I think the drive itself is definitely toast.
