    Tried that it didn't work either took it to the computer place and they wanted to charge me £100 to have a look or £700 to send it to a lab, with no promise of retreiving my information.
    Thanks anyway

Hmm any sort of nise from the disk is not a good sign. try using the unit on another Pc. if you have the same issue you might have to take it for warranty.(if you have warranty)

    ouch. so i assume that you don't have warranty on it..I am sorry.. but looks like you have a defective Disk. you can remove the disk from the enclosure & fix it on to a PC & try retrieving the Data ( no promises though) also as for the enclosure you can buy only the Disk from a computer Hardware store. I don’t think it will cost a lot. You can plug this on to the enclosure & use as a external drive. As for buying the Disk make sure you get the same interface as the one you had. SATA or PATA (IDE)

My computer cant find my external hard drive


Sounds like the drive isn't working, but the next step is to try it on another computer. If it doesn't show up there either, then the drive is faulty.

My maxtor 250gb ext drive cant be read


Hi

Sounds like the armature of the drive has prob got damaged or the platters destroyed. If the data is important then maybe look into taking it to a data recovery specialised before its too late.

Do not attempt to pull apart yourself as ideally a 'clean Room' is required along with some pretty expensive kit.

Thanks

It sounds like your external hard drive went belly up unfortunately. Unless you backed up your files to another location (remember, backing up means having your files on 2 or more locations, not just "keeping them" on an external drive).

If you really want those files, try DriveSavers.com. They do wonders with dead hard drives (known to have recovered files off a burned hard disk). But it comes with a hefty price. So check their website, http://www.drivesavers.com/.
