I have a 500 gigabyte maxtor external hard-drive. I used it last about a month ago and then packed it and put it away. Now, it won't show up when i connect it to my computer (i use a mac).
I have two years of work on it... it is doomed? what can i do to retrieve my information? HELP!

I wouldn't say it's doomed but unfortunately, I have no idea when it comes to BIOS or data recovery on a MAC.

it's not the mac that's the problem... it's the hard drive. when i connect it to the mac with a fire wire the hrad drive does not show up on the computer.

What happens if you connect it to another computer? Was the data on the external drive created on a Mac?
