Question about Maxtor (L01P080) 80 GB Hard Drive
I built a PC w/ intel board, both ide and sata capable for hard drives. initially was able to use old hard drive as a slave/ storage. everything was fine for a # of months. then something changed, an update to MS windows, or a new program, some sort of conflict appeared. now hard drive is not appearing at all. have spent weeks tweaking my bios, tweaking jumpers, reaaranging ports, re-installing maxtor drives/ software. nothing , zilch. for the life of me can't find conflict, can't bring back to life. it was working before on this system. and it has happened on other systems, based on configs, sometimes you see , sometimes you don't. not sure if it is raid conflict, though it does not appear so.raid program on power up recognizes hdd, but windows and bios don't see it. help??
Maxtor now owned by Seagate are having a number of issues with current tech, most of the time you can down load a flash for the firm ware, but there are those times that it will not work. If you had information on the drive you will not be able to retreive it unless you go through i365 a seagate company. depending on how much info you have on the drive they will charge anywhere from 400.00 - 1300.00. To this day they simply just do not provide the programme required to access the drive, I know I am going through it now..

for ide usually located on the top of the hard drive is the diagram
sata drives will automatically designate master slave
single or master :::::
master with slave ::'::
note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive next to the IDE/SATA lead/s
hope it helps
