Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I have a maxtor external hard drive that was working fine. About a month ago I plugged it in and nothing happened no noise or light showing. I thought it may have been the power supply, so I actually purchased the identical maxtor on ebay as they are about two years old. I opened the case of the maxtor I purchased and took out the hard drive and replaced it with the one of mine that is not working. Well to my surprise it did nothing. If the case is turned on without a hard drive in it the lights are on, if I plug in the hard drive of the new one I purchased the lights are on, however I only have to plug the power in on my old one and the lights go off. Please not I am only have to plug the power in actually in the machine and it is not working.
Any answers, is it the hard drive itself that is buggered if so can I give it to an expert to get the photos off it.

This is definitaly the drive itself that is close to or totally gone. You can send it into a data recovery center to have your pics taken off the drive but this can be expenive to do and it may not be possible depending on how the drive failed.
