    My Maxtor Onetouch II external drive is 1.5 years old. All of a sudden two days ago it stopped working. The drive used to show up as F in my computer. When I go to Disk Management in Windows XP, the drive is called Disk 1 and lists the drive as unavailable. Under system in control panel I do see the drive. In other words, the computer seems to see the drive, but does not give it a drive letter. What would do this and how can I fix the problem?

    Thank you.
