Connecting Maxtor to new computer

Got a new computer with Vista.
I have a Maxtor external hard drive that was connected to my old computer for backups. Worked fine. I plug it in to the new computer but it doesn't recognise it. Tried a few web downloads that promise to sort all drivers but no effect. Any ideas?

Have you tried the "add Hardware" in your control panel

Not a cast iron answer but worth looking!

Is the "jumper" set to CSL or even Slave? it was probably set to Master when used as an external HD
