Error on external hard drive

hey there

I got an External Hard Drive, (maxtor) with a self built enclosure. It was working fine, until today, whilst I was transfering data. An error message popped up. So i restarted the hard disk, and not ti doesnt show up in my computer, but in the safety removal part, it says the hard drive is in place?
any ideas?

if you have xp or me you could try a system restore.
