You can try opening the device manager in Window XP and uninstall the external hard disk (make sure you show unplugged devices).
Then replug the drive again, and it should reinstall the drivers.

I'm pretty sure that XP should pick up your external USB hard drive with relative aplomb unless:
1. The drive is USB 2.0 and your USB ports are 1.0 or 1.1 (and even then it should work, albeit at reduced performance)
2. Your drive is drawing too much power from the USB hub, causing an error condition.
Try plugging it into a different USB port.

The drive USB interface may be damaged; an external case is available form various vendors for about $20. The drive should pop out and into the new case. If still not recognized, then the ID track on the drive may be compromized - that can happen if the USB is unplugged while it is still writing to the drive. There is drive recovery software out there, like EASEUS that works quite well (they have a demo that you can try free) to see if that would work.

Beyond doesn't have much in the way of tech support or manuals, but I can tell you that if it doesn't power up, a new power adapter will cost you as much as simply replacing the whole enclosure.
Take the device to a local PC shop and ask the techs there to move your drive into a new enclosure, they should be able to do that for $20-$40 and you will save a lot of headaches trying to deal with Beyond.
Hope this helps FixYA,
