I dropped the Maxtor One Touch III to the floor pretty badly. After that it had only momentarily beep sound and could not be detected from my Mac. I took the drive out from the enclosure and hooked it up with the IDE cable and power cord, still no luck from my Mac but only beep sound could be heard. Now the beep sound is gone and I don't feel anything coming from the drive except a bit warm (with the IDE cable and power cord).
