go to start/control panel,add new hardware and let windows search for the hard drive.

Go to the seagate website (they bought maxtor) and download the windows version of maxblast. That is if you are using that as a spare. bootable cd rom version if it's not.

Hi there, I think it may be to do with the format of the harddrive - see if you used the Maxtor in a Windows XP environment it would have been formatted to suit that OS.

Is the Harddrive formatted to NTFS?

Ican not acsess my maxtor 120gb diamondmax plus 9


There are a lot of Maxtor drives that are bad. Suggest you download Maxtors (MaxBlast 5) utilities software to check the drive. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/maxtor_desktop/
OR you can also run Seagates software on you're Maxtor drive. Seagate bought Maxtor. Download SeaTools for DOS.
Follow the instruction given online. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Please go through "See the tutorial".

Good Luck!

My pc has a samsung HD161HJ hard drive as a second hard drive but now it wont reconise it in my computer and when it does it wont let me save anything on it


It sounds like your drive is going bad. If you have a back up of your data, install a new drive and restore your data.
If your system can not recognize your drive, it means it can't read sector 0 from your drive. This sector contains crucial initial information about your drive, and it wouldn't work without it.

Good luck!
