Use a differant HDD plug.
You may have a fault in that lead.

It may be that your power supply is too weak to power it, suggest upgrading another 250 watt of your current one.

-make sure that the cables from the ext hard drive is properly connected like power if there is and USB -try other USB port -try other USB devices -try other USB cable for that Maxtor -try other computer
the reason why you are doing that is to know if the USB port is broken of if the ext hard drive is not responding.

How do I crack open Maxtor basics 500GB 2.0 PN 9N22A4-500

If you have "Dropped" this drive & after that it doesn't "GO" any more, then, Undoubtably the "Heads" have "Crashed" into the "Platter" this is Terminal.... Seldom will you "Recover" from this. As there is Physical damage to Both the "Reading Heads" & the "Platter". In saying all that though I guess one has to try, just don't be too disappointed if you don't recover much. anything.
These drives are either IDE or SATA as such they would simply plug into the PC's relevant Data Cables and Power plugs.
Sorry about that. Good Luck. However in all likelihood, the USB interface should be OK, so you may be able to simply obtain a similar Hard Drive and replace it into the enclosure & start anew, being more careful this time, keep it on the floor, less distance to fall....

My maxtor basics 500gb is saying accsess denided ? and wont let me and any files can you help thanks

There is not much u can do if it wont let u access the drive first try a different computer so we can make sure its the drive and not the usb port on the PC and please make sure that you have confirmed power going to the drive if the drive does not work on another PC then the drive may be faulty if it does then we need to reconfigure your device manager and make sure that you USB drivers are working properly.
