External disks should work with Vista, no problems.
Have a look at this troubleshooting article, maybe those steps can help you.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, after years of use my Vista machine now tells me that the USB Device isnt recognised.


However last month I found that the Maxtor is no longer recognisable to my machine. Reading through related postings on other sites it appears that Vista updates from Microsoft may be the reason why this functionality has suddenly ceased. I presume the security updates in particular may have meant that the Maxtor 3200 is also considered a potential threat. The question is who will take responsibility for resolving this issue of Maxtor 3200 users no longer being able to access their back up files via their Vista based machines. Personally I believe the onus is with Microsoft

hope this helps

I can not see my usb maxtor 3200 hard drive in my


this could idicate a low power supply for the device. some computer do have front usb ports, the truth about this front port is that they lack the power to supply some of this devices (being 200GB). If you are connecting it to the front usb then try using the main one behind the pc.
also note that usb polling which acts by reducing power consumed by the device may also be a cause(that is if you are using a modified version of windows other than that from microsoft since the modifier can alter that as well). Also try using it on a friends pc to see the outcome.
do let me know of the out come.
good luck

Maxtor 3100 200gb hard drive not detected on PC running xp


Here we have two things to check and understand.

1) Is the Bios Detecting this hardware. Or is it that the basic Motherboard itself is not accepting the HDD.

2) The version of OS you are running and if the pug and play is able to detect the Hardware as the second stage of detection.

Do you see any hardware detection notification when you connect the HDD or when you Start running the HDD ?

I would like you to check these which will give you a clear picture of the issue.

Else please write back.. The Hardware on which the HDD is connected. Motherboard Specs, and also the messages or notifcations that you might be getting while trying to connect the Hard Disk. Good Luck.

Maxtor 200 gb external will not show up in my computer after numerous installs


For Vista you don't need any driver for this, it should recognize and install automatically.
Did you check the device manager to see if the disk is recognized in the device list?

Next step is to check the Disk Manager (right-click My Computer, select Manage and then select disk management), and see if the disk already has a partition and has been formatted. If not, then it will not show up in "My Computer" with a drive letter yet.

Some details on external hard disk troubleshooting might also help.

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.

Maxtor 3200 usb hard drive with windows vista home premium


Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

Need help making two maxtor 200 GB work as one please help


Your solution is to install a PCI ATA RAID card and set the array as "striped". The system will then see the two 200GB HDFD's as one.
