Sounds like the drive isn't working, but the next step is to try it on another computer. If it doesn't show up there either, then the drive is faulty.

My Maxtor External Hard Drive is not working


You need to check it with Norton Utilities. I hope you still have this hard drive (this posting is posted 5 years ago) and it is not dead yet, so you can copy all of the valuable files to your other data storage.
Here is the link to download the 30 day trial (free):

You did well to have it work so long!
It is out of warranty - open it up, remove the drive from the case. It may be a SATA drive, but probably an IDE from 4 years ago...

Just place it in your computer and it should work fine. The most common problem is the controller card for the external connection has failed. so putting it in your computer as a normal drive will either fix it - or tell you that the drive has died.

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor


If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.
