    Hi. My problem suddenly won't see my external Maxtor 120G hard drive,
    firewire interface, NTFS.

    the system: Win 2K Pro, 1G RAM, MSI mobo, Duron 950 Mhz

    The external drive doesn't show up in Explorer.

    I've tried connecting it to my Toshiba 8100 via a firewire PCMCIA card -
    same problem.

    W2K sees the firewire card and says it's working properly.

    Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management doesn't see the

    When I use Norton Win Doctor 2003, it asks if I'm having trouble with that
    drive, and tries to find a DOS partition. It takes about 4 hours going
    through the heads and cylinders and doesn't find anything.

    GetBackData NTFS doesn't find a disk there either.

    Any suggestions from the disk gods out there?
