Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
You will have burnt out the electric side of the external drive and possibley damaged the harddrive.
Your best soultion would be to buy a hdd caddy and remove the hardrive from the enclosure it is in and place it into the new caddy, plug it into the pc and see if you can still use it and see and recover your files.
If the above does not work. There is a chance you have damaged the drive as well and depending on you level of computer know how you can rebuild a hdd i came give you full details but it is a very complex process and has to be done in a sealed enviroment which is dust free.

that your RAM is securely seated
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
make sure the lead/s that attach to this drive have a secure seating and are not bad/faulty the light on only tells that its getting power it might not be getting enough power you might test the lead/s or
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
hope this helps
