Default External Hard Drive - USB2.0, gone?

I re-installed Windows and encountered a host of problems, but the most serious by far is that my external hard drive, a Maxtor 80G cannot be seen. But this is also the case on another computer.

I've installed the One Touch software & USB drivers, it just doesn't show up...not in Disk Manager or wherever.

If the data was erased somehow, I would still expect to see the drive icon when I go into My Computer.

Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated.

* The drive isn't too old, it was working just fine before I decided to screw up my computer and install Windows again...

Did you install SP1 at least when you did the reinstall? The USB drivers is on SP1.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
