Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Hi i baught a maxtor 1000gb maxtor basics external hd i put all my stuff on it then a couple of days later i went to turn it on and instead of starting upwid the fan goin and stuff it just buzzes aproxmitaly every 3 sec its still under warrenty but i dnt want to return it cause ill lose everything is there nething i can do
Im sorry, but it sounds like a hardware problem. theirs not many options.
you may either void your warranty by opening it up and hoping you can use the hard drive in another case (hope its not the hard drive)
or you can return it under the warranty. That is a bummer.
The terrabyte hard drives havent been completley worked out yet. i have heard of a bunch of problems with them failing because of how they are made. The scary part is i dont think they fixed all the problems with the 1tb drives and now they are moving onto 2 tb's!?!?!?

Best is to take it to the shop you bought it from. they will replace it. ask them to transfer the data to the new one. the chances are they might do it.
