Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

1 Answer

Maxtor 1000 GB external HDD not coming up on my laptop.

Yesterday I paused a movie on my laptop and shortly after while my movie was still paused I moved my laptop and the external HDD USB cable pulled out of my laptop. I thought nothing off it and closed the movie and went onto doing other things. Later last night I went to continue work with my external HDD and my Laptop wouldn't recognise it being pluged in. I have an LED on my HDD which illuminates when powered up. I have also heard the HDD making noises but it is a constant buzzing noise as if it is stuck at certain section and is unable to skip past. Is there any way for me to get my laptop to look at my HDD again. I have tried plugging it into my wifes new laptop and have had no luck there either. HDD has stopped making noises now but it still has the LED illumintated. Please help.

Try a program called GetDataBack the trial version lets you scan the hard drive for data, however you have to buy it to recover any data.

2 usb plugs which goes where??? maxtor 120gb external hardrive pn9nx2dc-500


You have what is call a USB POWER Y ADAPTER: this is designed to provide extra current to your USB HDD drive from a second PC USB port. Plug the end with two USB connectors to your PC/LAPTOP and the single-ended plug to your drive.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

External HDD is not working


You probably have conficker worm because it stops your pc from reading usb's or any external HDD. Or the worm might of infected your HDD since it spreads through usb and internet. Seriously you should get your PC scanned just incase. P.S. Its just a possibility.

Laptop not recognising external HDD


Since it's not listed in Device Manager, it needs to be reinstalled, or it is possibly another problem. Let's try the easy part first. Uninstall any software/drivers that are in your system using Add/Remove Programs. Then, connect the drive to the laptop with the USB cable and see if it is recognized. If so, you will be prompted to install the drivers. You can also try the Find New Hardware (in Control Panel) to see if it appears, then follow the instructions for installing the drivers. Let me know how that goes.

Simple you need to update your bios by downloading bios updates for you motherboard. Then it should recognise your HDD. The yellow triange just means your mboard does not have the necessary drivers to recognise the device. thanks
