Fitted a maxtor diamond max 120gb hard drive as slave ,t auto detects on the bios menu on start up ,but does not appear in my computer as a drive anyone know why please


If it is a "brand-new" drive, it needs to be "one-time" prepared for usage:

Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Manage
Expand the Storage branch
Click Disk Management
Click Disk Management (local)
Click on the "unformatted" drive to create a partition, and to assign a drive-letter.

I cannot get the computer to recognise the Maxtor device. I had it working 18 mths ago and have now just reconnected it. Not sure if I have all things plugged in correctly but can't find a diagram of...


The correct lead should be Y shaped and two of the limbs plug into two USB sockets on the PC, the third lead has a small jack which goes into the OneTouch. It should light up if it is getting power from the USB and there should be an icon showing for it in My Computer.

Maxtor 320 GB mini not working


If it shows up as a USB mass storage device it:-
1. Has power
2. It is connected to the computer via USB.
3.The correct software has been loaded for the hard drive. 
The beep sound is probably an error message saying that the drive is not responding properly inside the case.

Hard drives Drives have been known to stick or not start up due to power cables or ribbon cables being dislodged. Try pushing these back into place.

If this is not the problem go to the Maxtor site (maxtor.com) and report the problem with the drive, not the USB which appears to functioning correctly.

Light turns on but My Computer does not recognize the drive


Sounds like you lost the drivers for your external. W/ out an online PC you cannot download them either. Do you have a friend that could do this on their PC? That is the only way.

Is it of the same config? Are you hot swapping while the network is active? Do you have any redundant drives on the server?
