Version of parallels: 5.0
Section in system profiler: USB (shown as One touch III)
Software used: maxtor installation disc for one touch III (windows), downloaded maxtor one touch 4 software (mac)
all this, with the exception of the Maxtor software, should indicate a no-problem with that HD.
Personally I have always avoided the provided software, since it is not needed for external HDs.
If you have access to a Windows PC try connecting the HD there and see what comes up.
And if you don't have valuable files on that HD, you might repartition it there as well.
Could be a rare case of a 'dynamic disk' http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314343/en-us which is something that Macs can't handle.
