May be you don't believe it. I got the same problem with my maxtor
500MB this
Thursday. I couldn't make the drive work (because I have 400MB data on
the drive
and no backup for it). Eventually, I put my drive into my fringe for 2
hours and
connect it to my computer, and now, I can read the data and I
immediately back it

Four months ago, my hard disk already had a similar problem and I have
to let my
computer case open all the time or it gave me the similar error
message. My drive
keeps working until this Thursday and just try to cool it down (in the
fringe) and
it works!!!
