Just a note, instead of making another post, you can just reply to it and I will get back to you just as fast. Well, sorry to say, but you can't do anything to fix it yourself. The problem (sorry if you don't understand) is apparently the fact that the read/write heads for some reason don't park themselves off the platter when you turn your computer off. This causes the read/write heads to stick to the platter, and the platter cannot spin. If you have a warranty, you could sent it back, but if it has expired, then there is nothing you can do except get a new hard drive, and don't get Maxtor next time, instead get a more reliable brand like Seagate.

This is indicative of the hard drives, tracking head becoming stuck or misaligned.

Assuming the drive itself is still ok (it sounds like it would be), then yes, you can put the drive into another case or directly into the motherboard if you know how to do that.

Recover data from a non responsive LaCie F.A. Porsche Hard Drive


Does your drive make any unusual sounds like any of these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
If yes then you got a problem - it's something mechanical with the heads and it's not something you can fix by yourself.
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all - try to connect it to another computer and if still no go - remove the internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to PC via SATA port.
