Maxtor external problem :-((

Hi Hardware people,

My Maxtor external drive (one touch 200 gb firewire) is having a problem.
My PC (XP) does not recognize the disk as an external one. It says it
has an internal M: drive, but clicking the icon only brings forth the
question whether I want to format the drive (NO, of course!!!)
This was the same at another PC.

I have some questions:
1. Anybody knows how to solve this problem??

And if not:
2. I could bring it to the shop, and they send it to Maxtor. But what
can I expect from that....I like a fixed drive, but I hope my data
(pictures especially and mp3's) are still on it then. they fix
and format, or are they more considerate.

And if not:
is there a possibility to do some file recoveries on this drive...?

Thanks in advance,
