    I have an maxtor 120GB 7200 RPM external hard drive. I completed an duplicate of my C: drive on the external and then deleted Windows XP (deleting everything off of the local drive). After reinstalling Win XP, I then reinstalled the Maxtor software onto my computer and connected the external HD. My computer can see the external HD but has not assigned the drive a letter. I've tried reinstalling the software and its process several times but still cannot see any of my data or the drive(in explorer) on my computer. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, I have tried installing the external HD onto 2 computers and get the same results.
