Hi Jane,
If you are using Windows as an operation system, you can try to install the HDD manually

Click on the Start button
Right click on My Computer
click on properties at the bottom
look for the Hardware tab and click on it
look for the Device Manager button and click
look for Action in the top menu
then scan for new hardware

If this does not work, look on the Device Manager screen and you will see + Disk Drives
click on the + and it will list the drives that it sees
if you see the external HDD uninstall it and reboot

Hope this helps

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

After windows re-install, locked out of Maxtor drive


Hi,

Sounds like you're on the right track, but you don't need to buy another drive to get the software. Go to the link below and find the download for your drive in the list.

The software downloads are a free form of support from Maxtor.

If you have trouble or this doesn't work then post back here and I'll see what else we can do to help.

My maxtor wont work at all


It could be a couple things - do you still have the Maxtor software installed on the PC? If not you may need to reinstall the software because it may be a password protection issue.

If that is not the case the drive could be damaged. If damaged you may or may not be able to recover the data. Try downloading a product I have used before from Easeus (http://www.easeus.com/). Its drive recovery software and may locate the drive when Windows cannot.

If that does not work you may need a professional to repair the drive or recover the data.

Get a Code 10 and yellow circle


You can check if your external hard drive is detected by the BIOS during bootup. You can also check this by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your lacie. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just partition it from here and it will appear in your my computer. If it is indeed detected, you will have to use a application like Recover my files to recover your data and then partition and format the drive.
