Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
How do I resolve this error code problem? I have uninstalled and reinstalled the device, unplugged and plugged back in all to no avail.
Computer novice but need my backup info on this device-worried.
Same problem. Drive is 2+ years old and just ;stopped working'. Solid green light preceded by a Delayed Write Failure error message. Device Manager shows a yellow (!) next to the device in the table. Tried it on a WInfows 2000 machine and it came up OK. Went back to XP machine and it came back and then failed again after several hours. Won't come back on Windows 2000 machine - same error now. Upgraded to Windows XP SP3 instead of applying Hotfix from MS. At wits end. Need data that is on this backup device. Would like to know more about how to install the drive as a Slave - don't have a lot of internal desktop experience.
The reason your 3200 drive is not showing up in Disk Management is that the Device Manager is reporting a code 10 error for this device. To resolve this, uninstall the drive from the Device Manager by right-clicking on it and selecting "Uninstall". Next, disconnect the drive from your computer and then disconnect the power from the drive. Wait ten seconds and plug the power for the drive back in. After about ten more seconds, connect the drive to a built-in USB port on the back of your computer to see if it can be properly recognized then. If the drive still comes up as an unrecognized device after that, I suggest performing the aforementioned steps again and then connecting the drive to a different USB port on your computer.
I'm sorry to hear that my suggestions for uninstalling this drive from Device Manager, cycling the power on the drive, and connecting the drive to a different USB port on your computer were not helpful. These problems can sometimes be caused by a device conflict so I suggest temporarily disconnecting all other USB devices from your system and performing the aforementioned steps again.
If same problem still persists with this drive even when there are no other USB devices connected to the system and this drive will not work properly on any of the USB ports on your computer, that would indicate a problem with either the drive or something else on the system. In that case, I would suggest connecting this drive to a different system to see if you are able to access the data on this drive then. If you are able to access the data on this drive when the drive is connected to a different system, that would indicate a compatibility problem between this drive and the USB ports on your computer. The solution in that situation would be to get a USB 2.0 adapter card for this computer so the drive could be connected to that rather than a built-in USB port on the computer.
If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

To uninstall a device
The Delete the driver software for this device option removes the package from the driver store. It does not remove the currently installed driver for any other operational devices that use the same driver. If you remove the driver from the store, and the device is connected to the computer again, Windows must search for a copy of the driver package in the standard search locations, including possibly prompting the user for media. This option is the equivalent of running the command: pnputil -d -f <package.inf>. For more information, see Remove a Driver Package from the Driver Store.
If you are prompted to restart the computer, the removal is not completed and the device might continue to function until the computer is restarted.
