Maxtor OneTouch USB external HD inaccessible in XP

I have a Maxtor OneTouch USB external HD (120 GB) that I've been using to back up an XP pc (Windows Media Center Edition). recently, it stopped opening for me (windows detects it, the drive letter appears in My Computer, but i can't get in).   How should I troubleshoot it?

Tx.

No, I can't take it back.  Had no idea there were so many problems with their products.

Do people agree that investing in SpinRite is probably worthwhile?  It's rather expensive ($89).

Also, does the fact that the HD is detected by Windows mean much?  I see it in Windows Explorer, but can't open it.

It depends on what you want to do with spinrite. If you want the data from the disk, then getdataback is more what you want.
