  • Anonymous Jan 25, 2009

    same thing here! it appears to be recognized under device manager as a disk drive and appears to be functioning properly (same on two separate PC's). All drives appear to be updated (though there seems to be an abundance of driver issues with this particular drive).

    ANY IDEAS PLEASE HELP!

Does it make any sounds similar to these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php
Does it spin up at all?
Did you try to connect it to another computer?

Someone else figured this out, but I've seen a lot of people with the same problem. Hopefully this will help you with yours. This is for WinXP and Windows Vista. It worked great for me.

*** THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY ***

1 - Disconnect the HD from USB and power supply.
2 - There are 2 screws at the back. Unscrew and open the box. (The plastic is kinda hard to open be careful)
3 - Now you have a metal box in your hands. Unscrew and open it.
4 - Now you will see a HD and a controller board. There are 3 screws that holds the controller board. Take them out.
5 - Now slide out the hard drive and controller board out gently.
6 - Unplug the controller board (power socket and IDE socket)from the Hard disk.
7 - Look at the back you will see jumper settings. (Mine was set on Cable Select.)
8 - Take the jumper out and plug it to Master ON position. now put it all back together.

Try some other USB device (memory-stick, printer, camera) in the USB slot in the Vista computer, just to "prove" that Vista will recognize _any_ USB device connected to that slot.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 ... Problem


Check the manufacturers website, as all drives no matter what should come with drivers of some sort. this is the most likely cause for what is wrong.
