Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

1 Answer

Reformating all the time.

Hey, I have a really serious problem with my Maxtor 1TB. I formated it once and then download some programs ( movies & music ) onto in. Then a few days later, I have to reformat it again because my computer sees it as a new harddisk. My other harddisk ( IOMEGA 120gb ) works perfectly fine. Any solutions to why it is happening? Reply with a possible solution that will allow me to get my movies & music back safely.

Get a freeware data recovery software program (google for it). Be sure not to reformat the drive or copy any other files to it.

After you recover your files, run the maxtor diagnostics on it (do a full diag procedure).

I try to add music to my picture movie through windows movie maker but each time error:0x87160129 keeps popping up.movie will play but without music.Please help.


Program requirements before music, videos are displayed together on a computer
1. A music editing software separaly installed on the computer
a. the music files would be extracted from disk mediums by music editor software.
b. a versatile music editor software would provide format conversions
c. a music editor software that makes possible clip extractions to be integrated onto another program

2. A movie editing software separately installed on the computer.
a. a software that recognise verious file format in music and videos
b. a versatile video editor software would intergrate music from another software


Important notes
1. Music file formats are selected compartible to the video editor software on which to be integrated
2. Files have to be edited and stored at a separate computer folder like my documents, my briefcase, or personal file folder

Initial diagnostic checks
1. The music file is in an incompartible format, performing a file format convertion should resolve such an issue
a. software multimedia converters are acquirable to be installed separately
2. the music file is corrupted, selecting another would resolve the issue
3. performing the video creation precess altogether would fix any error. Discard the video created, and rebuild a new compilation of music and videos.
a. notice any file errors requiring fixing

How do I format my Western Digital 1T to fat32 for ps3?


Without a firmware update your PS3 needs it to be fat32 as you've noticed, and without the use of a utility Windows will not let you format a 1tb using fat32

You're best be it to download a program called SwissKnife, it's a utility that will allow you to format the drive the way you want

WARNING: Before using SwissKnife to format the drive, you have to take all the data off of it (onto your computer or another drive), if you don't then when you format the drive every file will be lost.

My maxtor external 1tb hdd crashes my pc every time i plug it in.


format it, if it does not let you i have nothing further, if you have windows loaded on it... format and reinstall windows. Also make sure the host PC has NO maliscious software, run your antivirus and spyware protection on full scan for both, malware likes to get us frustrated and thinking things are broken when they are only being told to look broken... sooo... good luck!

(Its either programming or mechanical/electrical, if its not programming than I am sorry for your loss!)

I have a fuji s2000hd, i loaded the video onto my computer, but i can't get my movies to import onto my editing program


I understand your problem and I have the same camera that videos in MP4 format (H.264) which is not user-friendly to windows movie maker, therefore, I downloaded or purchased a program that converts these MP4 file back into .AVI format, with no loss in quality, and then added them to windows movie maker on Vista, which then would accept the .AVI format to put the clips together. Once saving to your computer after the files are compiled and can then send the movie you have made to Windows DVD to turn into a DVD formatted movie. Works for me everytime. Unfortunately, this is a time consuming process but has been worth it for me.
