How to Get Back Data When Maxtor External Drive not Detected?

“I have owned a 1TB Maxtor Basics Desktop USB 2.0 External Hard Drive for around a year and half of it used primarily to store my media files on. It has been fine until couple of days ago; it now will not show up in My computer. This is the same on multiple machines!

The strange thing is that when I plug it in to a computer, it starts to make the noise that it is working and the green light appears on the unit. I thought perhaps it was a little overworked and unplugged everything and left off to cool down for a while. Plugged everything back in and still the same. My computer is running with Lion.

ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOME!!!! As I have a lot of photos, videos and music that I really do not want to lose!

Thanks a lot!”
