Maxtor External HD Wont Run

Specs: Windows XP
I have a 100 GB Maxtor external that lights up when plugged in but plugged into the computer is not detected or found. I think it was fried in a power surge but is old anyway. Not critical data but would be nice to recover. Suggestions welcome. Thanks

If you mean it's in an external enclosure, open the external case and try it connected directly to the computer. Sounds like you have nothing to loose if you break the external case in the process.
