    I have an external harddrive that I bought about 3 years ago. Heres a picture of it When I went to access the files from it today my computer didn't register that it was there. It turns on, and kinda makes some noise like its working a bit...but my computer just won't register its existence. I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in, and restarting my computer and the drive. I tired to find new hardware but it didn't find it and the drive came with no software so I have nothing to try. I have a Dell inspirion 8000 laptop running XP. The device is connected by firewire connected to a card. I can't find a website from the company and I don't have the manual so I really have no idea what to try. I have a ton of stuff on there and I would hate the lose it, but I just want it to be able to work again. Any help or suggestions on what to try would be much appreciated. I'm glad I stumbled upon this website, it seems like an amazing site.
