Windows 7: missing Maxtor HD

missing Maxtor HD

I used to have one! It seems to have disappeared, and I run diagnostics, and shows that the driver is messed up. I uninstall old driver, replug the external Maxtor HD back in, it shows that it installed a new driver, and I have to reboot. I do that, and still no HD. This is what I get, any help would be awesome, I have tons of shows I taped on the drive!! AHH!
