Maxtor hard drive problem

My maxtor external hard drive 500 Gb makes a strange three-tone bell like sound when I turn it on. It repeats this every few seconds. I can't see it in "my computer" or Windows Explorer, but it's in the device manager.

Audiable tone from the inside of my Maxtor HD


Well thats a toughie, theres a recovery company that will pull the platter's out and install it into a functional drive, recovery experts or something. You can try it yourself but it's delicate on a laptop drive but not impossible.

Sounds like the drive is dying. Is it externally powered, or powered through the USB port? How old is the drive? When you say 'strange' what does it sound like?
