I would like to upgrade the drive in Maxtor Personal Storage Firewire External Case It is Model No.: N256. It is a pale blue aluminum case with black plastic side caps.

Could you please tell me if I can crack this case, and how to do it and if this case will support a 500gb IDE drive.

I have a Maxtor 500GB. It was working ok but today the green light is blinking and the external memory is not conected with the computer. I have tried using different USB ports, conecting an desconecting...


you could disassemble the case and remove the drive. it could then be connect via an external controller such as(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2477926&CatId=3770) and test if the drive itself is good in which case it is the controller in the case.
cheapest way I can think of to diagnose these external enclosures

My maxtor 250GB 3100, don't show up on my windows xp.....what's the problem....????????????i need someone 2tell me someting...??????????


Some part of the device has "failed".

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

UPGRADE DRIVER FOR MAXTOR 3100 EXT HARD DRIVE


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Have a Maxtor External Disk 3200, recently upgrade to Win 7 32 bit & have having problems ever since with the Maxtor. What can I do?


You can click the program and 'run as xp' - this will give you some advantage of not having to deal with 7 drivers. Meanwhile - you can go to Maxtor's website and download the windows7 drivers for your external drive. One last thought - the drive may have chosen this time to not want to work for you too. There is a long term warranty so maybe you might look into an RMA if all else fails.

I have a Maxtor External Personal Storage 3100.


Here is a link to the Maxtor install guide for your drive. From what I can see there are also some diagnostic tools however / the listed supported OS does not include Vista but - if your running Vista 32 bit OS - try the XP tools. Affraid to say though it may be time for an upgrade.

Mhy maxtor external hard drive is not being recognized by my computer. What do I need to do?


Does it work when connected to a different computer?
If not, is it still under warranty?
If not, disassemble the case, and you'll find an "internal" MAXTOR disk-drive inside the case; try connecting that drive as a "slave" disk-drive inside your computer. If it is not recognized, then it is "dead" and you should take a hammer to it, so that any of your personal data on it will become impossible for any "identity-thief" to read, and then buy a new, larger, external drive.

Connecting problem


Boot your system with external drive unconnected, then go to add new hardware. then plug in maxtor and follow guide, if this is not of any help then unplug and replug drive IE switch off replug and switch on your Maxtor. After a while when all the software gets together all will be harmonious and groovy.

Opening external drive case


Actual solution. The darker side panels pop off and they alone hold things together. Simply pry each side away at rear. That would be end with power and USB connections are.
