Really a problem on a maxtor diamondmax16 80gb

I have a e-machine computer that was given me , the only problem with the machine is that the hard drive "crashed" .. it makes a clicking sound and dose not load... i have installed another drive in this machine and am using it know!, the original owner of the p.c asked me if i could get the drive to work to at least get some Pict. off... i would like to put a pc board on the drive to see if i could maybe access it long enough to get the picture off. any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. thanks and have a great day!

Lionheart, The click of death is not a good sign. If the drive is visible in the bios and not in the operating system you could try a data recovery program. a good free one is available at I don't know who roadkil is but he made some useful freeware like undelete and unstopcp. If that does not work you could try Active Undelete. This program will do a low level scan and recover data from active and deleted partitions. Another useful tip is to disable the logical disk management service in XP. I have found with some barely recoverable drives that XP will continue to dismount them and it becomes annoying. But it sounds like the .jpgs are lost unless at this point if the above mentioned didn't work you will have to cough up $1,500 and ship it to ontrack where they will take the drive apart and recover the data at the hardware level. Good Luck Hack

I have a Maxtor personal Storage 3200 external Hard drive. The green light was on but my computer wasnt recognizing it anymore. I took in to a local office depot. They were able to get it to show up on...

Try the manufacturer's web-site: and see if their E-commerce site offers that part-number.
Or, given the part-number on the power-supply, do a search on eBay -- you'll probably find third-party "compatible" power-supplies.

Maxtor 3200 was working fine. Suddenly my

Try connecting it to another computer.
If it is not detected, then either the disk-drive "inside" the unit is dead, or the "adapter" (USB-to-Disk-Drive) inside the unit is dead.

If the latter, disassemble the case, remove the disk-drive, and attach it as an "internal" hard-drive to your computer.

Browse to the folder where you saved the old data and open it.
Now do the keyboard command CTRL + A (select all) this will select all the files.
Click one of the selected files & drag them all to the new folder you have open and let go.

I'm really sorry wolverine51, but you will just have to replace it. You might also think about doing backups in the future.

All you should have to do is copy your files from their present folder on your computer to the Maxtor drive; you can find the drive location by clicking on the My Computer icon; or you can drag the files from their present position to the Maxtor.
