The item is an external HDD, you can use to store files on it.
You can download drivers, manual etc from Maxtors supporter site bellow.
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/

Youst select the model of your Maxtor, there are 4 diferent in that family. You can see on your item what model it is.

Download the drivers, install them, connect the item..and VIOLA, you will have 150GB external storage!


Good luck to you

Windows 7 Drivers for Printers and other accessories


As it is known to everyone that Win 7 is the latest Operating System from Microsoft and that lacks one of the best thing which Windows XP was having embedded inside it. Yes the in-built drivers which were automatically detected and installed without any rush for chasing drivers. Till date there are many computer peripherals like (printers, scanners, webcams, tablets, sound cards, NIC or Ethernet or LAN card, laptop, notepad GPS devises, Routers, Switches, Modems, Mobiles and many more) for which MS has not yet released the drivers or the publisher has not yet released drivers for Win 7. Hence,ultimately the user is suffering as they cannot use the peripherals which they were able to use with XP but after installing Win7 those devices don't work anymore because of the lack of drivers inside Win7 Operating

System.

The good news

Win 7 has a very good feature inbuilt on this problem that is compatibility driver installation mode. One can try and install the existing Win XP driver in Win7 with compatible mode. If an XP driver is installed in Win7 with compatibility mode then that particular peripheral gives out the efficiency upto 90% .



In order to install the driver first connect the device to pc and then select have disc in the wizard which pop-ups and then follow the wizard and look out for the word compatibility mode. Just select compatibility mode and your device isready to be used in Win 7. Otherwise you can also install the driver through control panel add new hardware and simply select have disc instead of search automatic and don't forget to select compatible mode while following the wizards instructions.

  5. In the Create Recovery Discs window, click the Start button.
  6. In the When recovery discs are needed window, click the Next button.

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Recovery For ACER 3660


If you have recovery disk try starting them from Windows, or start computer with disk inside and chose 'boot from cd'.
After booting from recovery disc chose complete recovery.
Save a backup of your data, as complete recovery may delete the data.
If recovery disk does not work you will have to install Windows from a generic Windows setup disk, in this case refer to manual for how to.

Here is the user manual, check from page 82
