Incorrect function initialized disk


There are a few steps that you can attempt. Such as using diskpart to try and reformat the drive. Or trying to remove the hard disk carefully from the enclosure then putting the actual drive in a desktop computer and seeing if it is recognized and able to be formatted.

Most of the time when I have dealt with this issue. Sadly the only solution has been to RMA the device becuase there is nothing you can do to fix this issue this internal issue.

The only way to now retieve your data is to seek a data recovery service which will most likely be expensive. Especially if the data recovery service is a real data recovery service. Make sure to ask about the recovery process and how they specifically retrieve the data. If the company says that they actually remove the HDD platters from the old drive to recover the data, you are probably talking to a real recovery team. Rather than a company that will only try connecting a cable and running some software.

I have the Maxtor III 500 GB unit that is 2.5 years old and it just stopped working. What do I do?


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files.
For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge guarantee".

My Maxtor Turbo III 500MB drive connected to my PC won't open anymore. I hear a periodic clicking sound from within. Help PLease.


Unfortunately, that's what is called the 'click of death' - the hard drive is trying to recalibrate, and failing. It might be possible to read the disk, but it takes specialized equipment and it's not cheap. You need to find a "data recovery service" near you.
