1 Answer

Cannot open the hard drive

Product NexStar 3: Innitialy I openned the 3.5 Maxtor IDE 18.6 Gigabytes with no problem, I have made a special file to copy information from my Dell 2650, I have copied about 200 Mb with no problem but suddenly stopped giving a message, that a file will not be copied because a wrong name. After this I cannot open the hard drive,I wonder if you can help me because in My PC the hard drive appears only with the letter "E:" with no details, when I right click over the "E:", asks for permission to format the hard drive and I dont want to do that because I have valuable info inside. I have tried changing th hard drive jumpers from "master" to "slave" with the same results. Please tell me what to do and how can prevent future problems like this. Best Regards, Arturo Blanco

Something went wrong in the copy process!! What happened is your file system got corrupted! This can be rectified by trying chkdsk e: /f /r at the command propmt(Start->Run then tyrp cmd and press enter) There is a posissility that your actual hard drive is faulty! Utilities here can help you determine that! http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SeaTools&vgnextoid=720bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD try the seatools for windows, because you have an external hard drive! If the test comes back ok then it could be that you need to update your operating system! Also, what file system is the hard drive formatted with, cause the FAT32 isn't as reliable as the NTFS file system, so you might wanna change it to NTFS if its not already!( At the command prompt type convert e: /fs:NTFS and press enter) lemme know how it turns out good luck regards, babb

The Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition series ...i have a I/O device error and dont want to open...


If your external harddrive came with software, you may want to reinstall it. If not you may have to go the the website for the Maxtor One Touch 3 and download the driver for the unit.

You may also want to open the device manager and check to see if your usb port is having trouble. More than likely it is the driver itself>

I want to read the files of my old Hard drive?


ok you have a pc. now, plug the IDE connector to your old hard disk and plug the power connector also. Now, you have 2 hard disks. Your old hard disk must be plugged into the secondary IDE slot. Dont touch anything with your original hard disk. Just add your old hard disk to your PC through the secondary IDE slot and using IDE cable. When your Windows OS opens, you will see a new Hard Drive when you open My Computer. It could be Drive E, F or G

5T020h2 jumper setup


No jumper is used on the J50 pins, when using the Maxtor 5T020H2 IDE harddrive, as a Slave harddrive.

In otherwords do not use a jumper on any of the jumper pins.

This is a PDF file of the Harddrive Specifications of the 5T020H2, 5T010H1, 5T030H3, 5T040H4, and 5T060H6 Maxtor IDE harddrives,
from Seagate. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/maxtor/en_us/documentation/manuals/dm_plus_60_ultra_ata_manual.pdf



The Jumper Settings are in Chapter 2, Page 5 (2-5)
Looking at the page number for the PDF file it's on Page 15.

Have installed ide hard drive but it isn't being recognized by the CPU and the light is strobing continually.


Did you install the IDE drive _inside_ the VANTEC external drive,
or did you install the IDE drive _inside_ your desktop computer?

Did you set the MA(ster) / SL(ave) / C(able)S(elect) drive to the correct position?

I'm getting a code 10; cannot start device on my maxtor 3200 . The power light is on, but it no longer functions.


What is wrong with your drive is probably what was wrong with my drive. After two whole days of gut wrenching about should I or shouldnt I take the darn box apart , I took it apart figuring well it is a code 10 and Seagate ( bought maxtor) tells you that the drive has probably failed.
I took mine apart and found a printed circuit board that was attached to a standard IDE drive. I took the board off and plugged the now IDE drive into a spare IDE cable and power connection, turned on my computer and crossed my fingers. Lo and Behold the "CODE 10" DEAD HARDDRIVE WAS ALIVE!!! my guess is that the circuit boards overheat as their are very little air flow slots for this drive and something lets go between the hard drive and the connections. So dont throw it away , carefully pry open the plastic case and remove the hard drive and the printed circuit board ( you have to unscrew the metal cage around both and take out the 3 screws in the printed circuit board. then carefully separate the board from the hard drive . At least you should be able to recover your data on the hard drive. I ran a quality test on the hard drive after I copied all the files from it and there is not one sector wrong on the whole drive. This may not be the solution you are looking for but in the least you are not throwing away a possibly good hard drive. Patience is the rule in prying the case open ( I did it with two medium screwdrivers and started at the hole in the case near the connectors that is rectangular in shape. I too had the lights are on but nobody's home syndrome. Good luck

Maxtor one touch iii mini


You have a possible corrupted file. Open My Computer and right-click the drive icon. Click PROPERTIES in the menu. Click TOOLS. Click CHECK NOW. Click a check into the AUTOMATICALLY FIX FILE SYSTEM ERRORS box. Click START. The OS may tell you a reboot is required.
If all else fails, dump the data to some other storage device and use DISK MANAGER to delete the partion, make a new partition and format.

Need to format


Hi, You can try: 1. Open your "My Computer" and determine which of your HDs is the Maxtor III, say "E" or "F"; 2. Right click on the Maxtor III; 3. Click on "Format"; 4. On the File System, select FAT 32; 5. Click on "Start" Of course formatting your HD will delete its content. Alternately, you can: a. Open a command prompt window (type "cmd" in "Run"; b. type "format E: /fs:FAT32" assuming your PC assigned the drive letter "E" to the Maxtor III; c. hit "Enter" If for some reason this will not work, you may have to likewise delete the partition first. A handy 3rd party utility for the partition/format of a hard disk is Partition Magic. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns out or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
