If this is a brand new hard drive from a store return it for a new one. Hard drives have a built in feature called SMART. For some reason the SMART function is reading that there is something very wrong with the drive. If you have more than one hard drive installed on the system make sure SMART is detecting it on the new drive and not the older ones by unplugging the other drives from the motherboard.

Computer not recognizing my Maxtor hard drive


Andrew, That Maxtor drive sounds like it has finally died on you and being just an 80 gig drive means its really old. The systems failure to read the drive as your booting up is what's causing the long boot delay as the system will see the controller board of the drive, but your spindle motor on that drive is most likely dead and there fore you will not be able to access or read any of your data stored on that drive. Hope you had backups of important files.

What type of Computer are you installing this 80g drive on? How old is it? I need to know some specifics, because in older machines the BIOS are not setup to recognize large capacity HD, in addition you may have recieved a bad Drive. Please advise! I may have an answer for you!
