Spins but makes a beeping sound and wont register.

Well, It sounds like there is something lodged in your Hardware drive...The beeping is probably a warning signal to tell you that it is not properly booting up...You should go to a Computer Repairman...

My computer will no longer react to my external harddrive. It's hooked up correctly but whenever I turn it on the harddrive lights go on for a moment then they just turn off and it does not register on my...

first things you have to do is that test the external drive with another system if it works then reload your system i.e format your harddisk and reload it with your operating system.

Doesnt register and all the lights stay

Does it work after you change the USB cable?
If so, then your USB cable is the problem.

Does it work on some "other" computer?
If so, then your computer is the problem.

Does it work it _any_ USB port in your computer?

Failing that, disassemble the casing, to find:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter,
* the disk-drive itself.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" drive to a desktop computer, to see if the disk-drive can be detected.
If not, then the disk-drive has "died".
Buy a new disk-drive, and connect it to that USB-to-disk-drive adapter, to "revive" your external unit.

Read the serial-number from the disk-drive, and access Western Digital's web-site, and enter the number in the "check warranty" section, to see if your unit is still under warranty, i.e., a free replacement.

If not under warranty, then W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty Program" -- buy a new External Hard-Drive from their web-site, and they will give you about a 20% discount from their "retail" price.

Flash drive repair

Not much I'm afraid. Sounds like it's dead, happens with thumbdrives sometimes, especially if you pull it out without stopping it or ejecting it properly first. I've heard of software that can try to recover files from corrupted thumdrives but if it's not working electronicaly with the computer it's useless. A data recovery service my be able to access the flash chip on the drive directly but this would cost a lot I'm sure.

Won't register on another WinXP computer; now won't register on original.

If you cant get access to the drive the only option is to send it back to maxtor but they are able to retrieve data from the drive but they usually charge you as i have done it for customers before. afraid i dont think theres any other option unless you can get the machine to register it.. All the best John
