Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (M1227310) Hard Drive
My maxtor 3200 was working fine two days ago when i was going through files of music and pictures. > i always unplug it from my computer when i am not useing it.< i replugged the usb back into my desk top and nothing happened. the auto play feature will normally pop up asking what i want to do. on the trouble shoot window it says that the maxtor is not starting. can you please help?
I had the exact same problem, 3200 EHD worked perfectly until Thursday, then CPU would not read. There was an update automatically installed the night before "software distribution service 3.0" was the name. I did a system restore with no luck. Finally I just removed the entire Windows XP service pack 3.0 in contol panel and EHD works fine now.
Not sure what reprocusions will reslut from removing SP 3.0 but I could reall care less, at least I have my 300 GIG back.

Someone else figured this out, but I've seen a lot of people with the
same problem. Hopefully this will help you with yours. This is for
WinXP and Windows Vista. It worked great for me.
*** THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY ***
1 - Disconnect the HD from USB and power supply.
2 - There are 2 screws at the back. Unscrew and open the box. (The plastic is kinda hard to open be careful)
3 - Now you have a metal box in your hands. Unscrew and open it.
4 - Now you will see a HD and a controller board. There are 3 screws that holds the controller board. Take them out.
5 - Now slide out the hard drive and controller board out gently.
6 - Unplug the controller board (power socket and IDE socket)from the Hard disk.
7 - Look at the back you will see jumper settings. (Mine was set on Cable Select.)
8 - Take the jumper out and plug it to Master ON position. now put it all back together.
