External Drive Problem

I have a Maxtor External drive that I use as storage. Recently I've been receiving messages that some of its four partitions are failing, i.e. unable to be written to. Today Windows Explorer wouldn't read them, plus there was no sign of them in Control Panel/Disk Management.
Yet when I switched to Windows 7, there they were as normal, with all their contents intact.

Can anyone help, please?

Back up everything you require before messing any further with the drive.

When everything is backed up run a chkdsk /r on it.

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\ Seems to be OK now after chkdsk done, but I wonder what was up with it....
