Maxtor External Hard Drive Trouble

Hello. I recently got a new computer and copied all my files to a Maxtor n256 80 GB external hard drive. Now, when I connect the drive to the new computer I can see the drive in Explore, but get an I/O error when trying to read anything on it. I loaded some Maxtor One Touch II software I found, and when I run the troubleshooting portion on the disk it scans for the disk and cannot find it. Although, when I do a scan for drive information it sees it. It also shows up in Explore, but gives me the I/O error when I try to see what is on it? Do you have any suggestions? I really, really need to get to these files! Thanks so much.
