You might want to try downloading this fix from Microsoft. http://support.microsoft.com/KB/908673, as your first line of attack.  The problem seems to be within your usb 2.0 hub on your computer.  See if this helps.
Thanks for posting.

Please, i have two hard drives, the first one is maxtor 80 gb (which i want to make master),the other one is sata sumsung 750 gb (which i want to make salve), how could i get that done ?


Hi!
That can be done from BIOS setings. First check that both the disks have been detected by the BIOS.
Usually, the hard disk at sata1 (1st sata connector on board is for master drive.
Secondly, look for the bootup option and choose maxtor as primary drive (to boot from it)

Hope this helps!. let me know about *********** board details also, if further any assistance is needed.

Try a different "data" cable between your computer and the external disk-drive.

If there is an external power-supply, borrow a "multimeter", and test that the power-supply is supplying power (correct voltage and correct amperage).

Try connecting it to another computer.

Disassemble it, and disconnect the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter. Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if the disk is working.

If it still is under warranty, either your local retail store, or Maxtor/Seagate will honour the warranty, and replace it.

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB 6Y080L YAR41BW0 internal hard drive not working think it might be the PCB Board not working.


It's possible that you're correct.

However, finding a Maxtor drive with an identical PCB is not going to be easy. Once you do, you can disconnect the "spinning" part of the disk-drive away from the PCB, and then swap PCB, and see if you can then QUICKLY(!) copy all 80GB to a "new" disk-drive.

Maxtor 80 gb portable hard drive copying problem


Unless the data on the maxtor is very important You should format the drive, assuming you are using windows, go to my computer, right click on the drive, it should show the option to format. If the info is very important, my advice take it to a info recovery business.

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


Right Click on My Computer, click on Manage, go to Disk Managment, if the drive is available you will see it there. Check to see if it has a drive letter assigned to it, if not right click on it and choose Change Drive letters. Make sure you are on the external drive though, you don't want to change your C drive accidentally. It should pop up in My Computer.

Partision prblem


This is because an 80GB hard drive only has 75GB inside it will not be exact because of the way hard drive manufacturers compute the size. 80GB by name but only 75GB in real hard drive space. much like a if you have a flash drive or a portable uSB you will notice this also.

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


I have a Western digital model wd2500b007-rnn
and I cannot get either my PC or my laptop to recognize the drive. I isolated the drive to another computer with the same error. It says USB device not reognized. I also tried a different port. I have not tried different cables. Can I retrieve the old data on the drive?

Did you find a resolution for this? I am having the same problem. None of my PCs can recognize the drive. Formatting seems to be the only choice but I need to recover my old data first.
