I need some help, I've done some research already and can't find a solution.

I am using a Maxtor One Touch II as an external hard drive. I have checked and swapped out the power cord and the UBS cord and confirmed all are working with other devices.

The Maxtor lights up, so the power is getting to it, but I don't hear or feel the hard drive spinning at all. I can hear a faint clicking sound coming from the unit.

Most solutions I have seen on the net elsewhere have you find the drive in explorer or Device manager, but it is not showing up on my computer at all. Alternatively, I can't take the information off the drive if its not even recognized.

Any ideas?

Operation System is Windows 7

Remove the drive from the case and attach it via USB adapter, another enclosure or directly to the computer.
The clicking sound is ominous.

The secret wiil be in the seams. Some of these cases are just pressed together, and it's not like it's doing you any good anyway.
Next time, buy the case separately from the drive.

Some Maxtor One Touch units used a plastic band around the enclosure which was just "snapped" to the enclosure. If you removed the plastic band the enclosure came apart fairly easily.
