I have just bought a portable hard drive today do i need to send off information to guarantee my full warranty or do i just save my receipt. thankyou


Your best off registering the device online. This will ensure that if anything goes wrong during the warrenty period you have documentation of ownership.
This is most important if the drive is a Maxtor. Maxtor drives have been known to have problems.

Want to format for pc


Since you want to format it, let's blow away the partition:

1. Right-click [My Computer]
2. [Manage]
3. Disk Management]
4. Find your Maxtor in the list or graph.
5. Once you are certain, then right-click the Maxtor entry (or graph) and select "Delete Partition"
6. Answer [Yes] to the next scary question.
7. If it has other partitions, you may want to examine them and delete them later.
8. You can now "New Partition" (right-click)
9. The create a "Primary" drive and format it.
*done*

I have bought a maxtor basics external hard drive today and am having problems using it


The drive is working. Since it is set for auto play its scanning your drive for photos. If you cancel out of it and go to my computer you should see the hard drive.

Bios won't reconise 160 gig maxtor harddrive


You could try a BIOS update to increase the size of the Drive the BIOS is able to see.

The second last one indicates that drive sizes are supported over 65GB. It may still not be able to see the 160GB HDD, but this is your only option with this Board. You could always upgrade the Motherboard to support larger drives.

Good Luck.

Maxtor external hard drive


I'd first check the unit on a second computer. If it does the same thing, then you likely have a defective unit
