I'm not sure how you do it with out a program. If you google something like "Partition Editor Program", that may be the best thing for you.

By deleting the windows partition, you may have deleted the windows compatibility. You can try and reformat a partition of the drive to a windows FAT32 I believe, but you may lose your other data.

Cannot read my maxtor in the computer


Put the bad drive back in and just like it was. Take the maxtor cd to another computer and make the diag cd. Boot your system from this cd. It's written in linux so it can boot the system. Most of the time this happens when the drive is unreadable. It's caused by the controller chip in the drive thinking the partition is gone. It will tell you to partition and format. If you get the dreaded 006 error then the drive is usless. Get the referance number it says to give the tech. If under warranty then go to maxtor site and fill out the mra forms. This is where you're gonna need the ref number. Maxtor is REAL picky about how you pack it so follow their directions.
if you don't have the cd you can get MaxBlast from their web site.

Sorry, Maxtor prog on poota is currupted. Have you recently downloaded programmes? When updating, some progs have a nasty side-effct of hitting some other programmes, not all the time,just your important ones?

You will have to uninstall and reinstall Maxtor prog, Not sure there might be a repair facility, not sure but it worth a try before uninstalling all.

MY external hard disk maxtor is not detected


Is this a new Maxtor external drive? It came with a CD. Run the utility.

If there is no data on it that you want to save, you can also blow away the partition and format it:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
[Disk Management]
Find your external Maxtor Disk inthe list and / or graph
Right-click on the disk and select either "Format" or "Delete Partition"
(try format first) Use "NTFS quick format"

If you delete the partition, then "Create Partition" and then format.
You can assign a drive letter or accept whatever it assignes (probably Drive D)
*done*

Maxtor OneTouch III Mini not appearing on MacBook Pro


Hi Lois,
If your Maxtor appears in Disk Utility but the disk volume is not displayed, it's possible that the partition on the disk has been deleted for some reason. If that's the case, you will have to use a disk partitioning utility to create a new partition and then format the hard drive.
Best wishes,

Need to format


Hi, You can try: 1. Open your "My Computer" and determine which of your HDs is the Maxtor III, say "E" or "F"; 2. Right click on the Maxtor III; 3. Click on "Format"; 4. On the File System, select FAT 32; 5. Click on "Start" Of course formatting your HD will delete its content. Alternately, you can: a. Open a command prompt window (type "cmd" in "Run"; b. type "format E: /fs:FAT32" assuming your PC assigned the drive letter "E" to the Maxtor III; c. hit "Enter" If for some reason this will not work, you may have to likewise delete the partition first. A handy 3rd party utility for the partition/format of a hard disk is Partition Magic. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns out or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
