I am having similar problem with the Maxtor 80G version of similar drive as yours. What I found is by simply "tapping" it, the hard drive would spinup ok, otherwise it wouldn't.

I received a replacement under warranty. The problem is, the new one (4D080H4 as opposed to 4K080H4) is much noisier, I really enjoyed the quiet operation of the first one. I'm bummed.
You can tell the designs are different, from
housing to circuit board. But according to the
website, the only difference is one is made in
Japan, the other Singapore.

Good luck.
