Question about Maxtor MaXLine Plus II 250GB 7200 RPM Portable External USB (250GBEXT) Hard Drive
See one line question above
Hi i had the same problem. I found that this did the trick for me:
Try looking for the drive in the "Disk Management".
Right click on "My Computer" or "Computer" and select "Manage" then select the "Disk Management" item.
If you can see the drive, but there is no drive letter assigned, you may need to format it for your operating system or create an accessible partition on the drive. You can access all these options by right clicking on the drive from the "disk management" screen that you should be on.
mine needed to be initialized (by right clicking on it) and then i formated it

Hi - thanks for your quick response, much appreciated .........I will try again to explain!!
We have purchased a 250Gb Maxtor portable hard drive which I was told was plug and play. We have followed the instructions for connection but no drive letter is showing up and the external drive is lit up and making a constant beeping noise. The computer doesn't seem to be recognising that an external drive has been connected.
To test our computer out I have connected an 8Gb memory stick to the processor and it shows up as drive H immediately.
FYI - we have XP running on our machine.
Hope you can help!! Thanks
