Question about Maxtor OneTouch II external hard drive 500GB 7,200 RPM - FireWire & USB (E04W500)

Maxtor Harddrive Disconnects

I thought at first it was because of the computer, but later found it wasn't because I formatted the computer's harddrive and started fresh. If the external harddrive remains inactive for about 3 min. or so, it becomes unusable until I unplug it and plug it back in.
It gets VERY frustrating since a majority of my files are on the external drive.

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.

Maxtor 3200


Seagate troubleshooting Error Code 10, states that drive has failed. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

Before you resign yourself to everything is lost on this harddrive, how about trying one more thing?

How about putting the harddrive inside in a new external enclosure, and see if it works? I suggest that perhaps the external enclosure it's in, is bad.
The harddrive inside is a 3.5 inch harddrive. Same width as used by a desktop computer. It is a Sata harddrive.

Here's an example of a 3.5 inch Sata, external enclosure,
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3901268&CatId=2780
Just pop the external enclosure open that holds it now, take it out, and install it into an external enclosure like the example above. Plug in the USB cable.

Don't know if this applies to your particular Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, but when I went to search for the type of harddrive it uses just now, I ran into thsi, and thought I would pass it along. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/personal_storage/ps3200-sw)

How to Install PS2 Modchip?


what you need: an IDE harddrive (maxtor or seagate works best. ive got a maxtor diamondback or whatever its called), the online adaptor and hdloader. hdloader can only be found on the internet so google it. if youre interested in my setup then you need the original hdloader then you can go to ps2hd.com and find all the other programs if youre interested in doing cogswap (play burned games without a chip) then also search that site for the ps2 exploit disc and cogswap. each harddrive is different and can require differnt jumper settings. look on your harddrive to figue out what is cs or check te company's website where you put your harddrive on the ide cable matters. when i first installed a secondary harddrive in my computer i had to shift my original harddrive down one position to make room for the secondary and allow it to take the secondary position on the ide cable. if you switch them then your computer will tell you "cannot find primary harddrive" and will not boot. one thing that i didnt mention is that you should also ground yourself after grounding the computer. your body can carry static electricity and if it gets discharged inside of your computer you can destroy components like RAM, the motherboard or even harddrives. to ground yourself touch a part of the metal casing of your computer. this will continue to be updated as i find more things that i forgot to say
