I bought a Maxtor 1tb External hard drive about a month ago

I have used it in 3 machines. On saturday whilst browsing my files it said it could not find the files and it needed to be formatted
10 minutes later, the hard drive could not be found by the pc

I now put the power lead in and nothing happens. not recognised by the pc, the green light on it flashes and no noise from the hard drive

any suggestions - legal or illegal? . i currently have 320gb worth of data on it and need it back

Can somebody merge the other thread with this one? or at least move the other one here?

(The other one probably doesn't get many reads because of the section it's in)
