external USB hard drives do not need to be jumpered, if your computer does not recognize the ext. drive probably it is because the enclosure is defective, when you connect the USB cable you should get the "ding-dong" connection sound.
If you think that your computer recognizes the hard drive then jumper it as "secondary" or "cable select" and install it INTERNALLY, then transfer your data, that will prove that there's a problem with the ext. enclosure.
One more thing, maybe the USB port you use is malfunctioning, try one that you know that works (assuming that you have other USB devices that work).

In all honesty Hard drives do not have any passwords. Maybe you need to re-declre ownership of the contents inside the disk to gain access to the files.
Microsoft windows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421
Mac os X: highlight the drive and press +i to "get info" the last patch of settings on the window is permissions add yourself to the permissions of your maxtor drive with read/write/access and apply to all enclosed items. close the window. eject the drive, re-connect and get your files.
