SOURCE: maxtor 3200 160gb usb hard drive not in my computer

Hello kc9iid.

"Any suggestions?" ... Yes. Here's a quick few:

If it's showing in your WinXP's "Device Manager", try reinitializing it.

1. Select the device (maxtor 3200 160gb), then right-click > "Uninstall" it.
2. Reboot (instead of rebooting, you may also simply do a menubar > "Actions" > "Scan for hardware changes". However, if you haven't already rebooted since problem was recognized, this is a good time to do it now. If left un-done, you'd be amazed how often that one action alone will work wonders).

If that brings no joy, see if the drive is reflected in your "Disk Management" console [Start > Run... > type "diskmgmt.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"].

If it's not there, your registry is probably configured to "hide" (not display) the specific drive letter assigned to this drive. You can both check and correct this by getting "TweakUI". Download it here http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/TweakUI.shtml. After it downloads, launch it, then ensure the subject drive letter is checked ON [TweakUI > left colunm "My Computers" > "Drives"].

Good luck, and post back with a status report and/or any further questions.

PROBLEM 0GB MAXTOR DIAMOND22 STM3160813AS


Hello,

Your drive can be showing 0GB for a few reasons, if it is showing 0GB in BIOS, in Device manager or in any hard drive utility chances are the PCB is shot or one of the heads has stopped reading. In either case you will need the help of a data recovery expert if you wish to retrieve your data. If it's showing 0GB in My Computer but shows as 160GB(~155) in a harddrive utility or under device manager you simply require a software solution. If you require a recommendation for the professional recovery route simply reply back letting me know and telling me what country and state/province you live in, I can get you in touch with an appropriate service. If you simply need a software solution reply back with the drives original OS, your current computers OS and I can recommend a software package that will allow you to recover your own data.

Dear i am using ms-7142 v-1 motherboard. now i,m using ide 80 gb hdd.now i want to connect 160 gb sata hdd.its not showing bios also.hdd is working fine.i reinstalled os.and installed sata raid driver


first thing I would try is seeing if the sata drive is recognised on another motherboard if at all possible ,in order to eliminate the motherboard as the issue.If it is recognised on a different motherboard it is more than likeley a bad cable or a bad board .

Install driver of maxtor 160gb onetouch 4 mini


Hmmm What software do you need?
You should not need software to run the HDD. Just plug it in.
You can get the One Touch software from Seagate (who no own Maxtor) See

System can detect Fujitsu MHY2160BH : 160GB HDD, but cant install


it seems that your computer might have a SATA hard drive which could not be detectable by windows xp, try to install vista it will detect it easily.

otherwise use dm (disk manager) for detection and partition.

EMACHINE T1840 160GB HDD UPGRADE


The Safest thing to do is to actually create a 2nd partition
which will give you the full use of the 160gb
remember thou that windows sees a K as 1024
not the 1000 measurement you would expect
On older pcs there is a limitaion 137 then when formated bringing it down to 127gb
If me I would run the Maxtor setup and choose custom ,delete the partition already made, then create 2 partitions ,then tell it to copy from your old c:\ to the first partition,making new hdd the new boot drive
another option is go buy a ATA133 PCI card with 48 bit addressing
