You have a possible corrupted file. Open My Computer and right-click the drive icon. Click PROPERTIES in the menu. Click TOOLS. Click CHECK NOW. Click a check into the AUTOMATICALLY FIX FILE SYSTEM ERRORS box. Click START. The OS may tell you a reboot is required.
If all else fails, dump the data to some other storage device and use DISK MANAGER to delete the partion, make a new partition and format.

Light turns on but My Computer does not recognize the drive

Sounds like you lost the drivers for your external. W/ out an online PC you cannot download them either. Do you have a friend that could do this on their PC? That is the only way.

All you should have to do is copy your files from their present folder on your computer to the Maxtor drive; you can find the drive location by clicking on the My Computer icon; or you can drag the files from their present position to the Maxtor.

Bought NEW MAXTOR ONETOUCH III (No software included???)

Tell Rey Barcelo that the Installation software is on the hard disk
inside of his Maxtor OT Mini III 80 GB. There is no physical CD.
It's all on the hard drive inside of the device. I had my computer
expert look at it and now the device is working normally.
A lot of Kudos to you for steering me in that direction.
