Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3100 (M01B080) 80 GB Hard Drive
If the light is indicating "no power", then it won't be recognized.
Borrow a "multimeter", and check that the power-supply for the external drive is putting-out the correct voltage/amperage.
Try disassembling the external drive, and connecting the disk-drive as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if the disk-drive itself is OK.
