hi, i have a maxtor personal storage 3200 500gb, on day i backed all my files onto the hdd to do a reformat of my computer, wheni was done i wanted to put files back but when i powered up the hdd using the proper power cable nothing happened, no little green light and no hdd spin, so i thought it was the usb adapter and opened the casing and put the hdd into a desktop as a slave and nothing happened, it wouldnt even see it in strtup dos, but strangely if i put power to the adapter it works when the hdd isnt present, but plug it in and it wont work again, this is disturbing and i hve not warranty so any help or solutions would be brilliant, thank you

If it isn't recognized in the bios, it is dead.
If it is recognized in the bios, run Seatools and data recovery software.
