Fire Wire Problem

Ok here is my situation, I have 2 hard drives that are external that I connect thru my firewire port.

Recently both drives are not detected anymore by windows. My guess is my fire wire connection when I go to network properties does not show any IP etc information on it. When I click repair it says TCP/IP is not enabled for this connection.

I also have norton system works / internet security along with System Mechanic 6.0 installed.

Could any of this be the problem? What can I do to help resolve this situation?

Thank You,
Quick Update:

I took out the Maxtor Drive I use and put only the other external firewire hard drive and it works and is detected.

When I plug the maxtor in it just blinks with the green light over and over instead of staying on, and the red light never comes on. I think I need the drivers for it again maybe for it to be detected but I can't find them on maxtor's website.

Anyone got suggestions?

Below is a link to the maxtor hard drive I own.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
