Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I've been using the External hard drive (maxtor 1TB) for about 3 weeks without a hitch and now all of a sudden, my computer (laptop) can't detect the Hard drive. Any suggestions please?
Go to your admin tools and go to the device manager and look into the storage section and if you "see" your 1TB maxtor drive right click and make sure its active/enabled (sorry if my terminology is off im going of memory) i bought one and had some issues getting my PC's to recognize it till i did that and viola it worked fine (after a 3 hour format) but i thought i had one of the wonderous D.O.A HD's from maxtor (lots of bad reviews out ther right now)

Im going to assume your on XP for these instructions. other wise you still need to do the same thing.
right click the my computer desktop or the start menu. go down to properties. open the hardware tab. open the device manager. Scroll down to it, remove the driver, just delete the whole entry. unplug the hard drive, then plug it in again. See if that works.
hope this will fixya....
