I Have a Maxtor blackArmor personal storage drive. I have forgotten the pass word to it. It wont let me change the password without knowing the original password. It has our family pictures on it tha


Well, according to Maxtor, there's nothing you can do to recover the password. I suppose that's the point of having a secure drive like that. Here is an excerpt from their FAQ:

"What do I do if I lose or forget my BlackArmor drive's Password?
There is no way to recover a lost/forgotten password. In the event that this happens, you must perform a KeyEraseTM using the Maxtor Manager software. Once erased, you will have to reconfigure, repartition and reformat before redeployment/use."

I can't access the hard drive


You will need to initialize it from the Disk Management. To do this, right click your My Computer and choose Manage. At the left panel click on the Disk Management. The list of available drives will show on the right.

Right click on the drive and a window will popup. Select create partition (primary partition). After you've selected your partition , now you need to format the hard drive. Choose quick format. Right click again on the partition you've just created, now select "Format" and select NTFS. Click ok and it will guide you until it is finished.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Beeping, not showing on computer


Its beeping because its damaged! sad to say but the beeping is an error code! the other downside is hard drives are hard to repair so you may need to buy a new one.

Only 32 gb of 250 gb hard drive is reconized


Hey,

If you look at the jumper settings on the drive, they are near the power connector and data cable, then look at the jumper info on top of the drive. I think the jumpers are set to limit space 32GB.

Adjust the jumpers.
Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

My maxtor wont work at all


It could be a couple things - do you still have the Maxtor software installed on the PC? If not you may need to reinstall the software because it may be a password protection issue.

If that is not the case the drive could be damaged. If damaged you may or may not be able to recover the data. Try downloading a product I have used before from Easeus (http://www.easeus.com/). Its drive recovery software and may locate the drive when Windows cannot.

If that does not work you may need a professional to repair the drive or recover the data.

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer


If this is a Maxtor drive that you password protected and now you can't get it to work on another PC or new hard drive. I had the same problem. Fortunatly I had set it up on another PC prior to setting up password protection, so when I tried it at work I discovered that the software will not even load on the PC becuase of the Password protection. If possible you need to use the hard drive that it was first set up and turn off the password protection. Then it should work on any PC.

Unable to brows the Maxtor External HDD


Hi

If the password is ATA then you will not be able to gain access to your user data without either knowing it or having the tools which can access the HDD in the SA and not user area.

You may need to speak with a DR firm for advice.
