SOURCE: cannot install on my computer
Just go to their website and look under "support". Find you model and you can download the drivers for it. Maxtor has become Seagate but they still support Maxtor. Here is the website link you need. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/

It is very uncommon for a had drive to fail with out power surges or some other physical damage so I would suggest making sure all of the cables are connected properly and that the connectors on the back of the hard drive that tell it whether it is slave, cable select, or master are setup correctly, and if the hard drive has failed there really is no way to get information off of it, but my hopes are high that it has not failed. Good luck,

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts
if it still cant be detected or If the hard drive that has failed is the same one that you are trying to recover from might the reason that you are getting this error.
This could be an issue where the part of the hard drive you are trying to access is corrupt and not accessible which would explain the reason that it would let you access the other partition.
Now I have seen cases where Malware can break the link of a Hard Drive.
So let's try a couple of steps.
Let's go back in to "Disk Management"
Lets right click on the partition that you are not able to access and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths"
Now try selecting a new Drive Letter.
This will restore the path if it has been broken.
There are also Data Recovery programs that might be very helpful to recover your important information.
Some addition links found on Google
or if its a usb external drive you might need a usb 3 card installed on your computer your computer might not have enough usb output
these can be purchased on Ebay cheap and easy to install
for roughly $9 or $10free postage
hope this helps
