ive got a maxtor 3100 80 gig USB 2.0 external HD. ive had it for 6 months now, never had any problems with it... until yesterday....

it wont mount to my HD. ive tried to reset it over and over, and the lights are going on like its booting up... just never mounts to my desktop. i searched a little in the forums to see if anyone else was having this problem, and they recommended going to disc utility and try to run the first aid on it. i did so, and i keep getting error messages. it is showing up that its plugged in, but isnt usuable. is this thing shot?

i hope not... but if it is, what are my options? ive got quite a bit of stuff on this HD and really hate to lose it. my warranty is done on it, and i really want the stuff on it more than the HD. any help? thanks in advance.
