Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I have a Packard Bell imedia 5109 pc. Unfortunately, when I start up the computer it constantly reboots over and over again. It will finally work maybe after about 12 or so times rebooting. Do you think I may need to replace the hard drive.
- Do you hear any beep sound when you plug in the USB drive into the laptop? - You can also try a different USB cable - Try connecting the hard drive to a different computer and see if it works All those steps will help you determine where the issue is. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck

It is in my experience with hard drives used in external USB enclosures - the jumpers are not nessessery.

Go to the following website and download the FREE TestDisk program.
Make sure you read through the documentation for using the software. This is a powerful Data Recovery tool so proceed with caution. It can fix lost partitions, deleted partitions and many other issues.

If you did in fact change the partioning structure then the only recourse is to send the drive to a data recovery center. If the drive is running they should be able to recover the data.

The beeping/clicking sound usually means your hard drive isnt far from "death."
You should be backing up all your data and yes, you can find people who get info back from hard drives, but this is very expensive.

I had this problem and found that by holding down the shift key whilst re-connecting the drive solved it.......not permanently but it has worked on several occassions
