I have a Maxoptix t5-2600 running on windows XP it appears
as if there is no disk in the drive under My Computer. But the program I use to
read the MO disk recognises its there. Some times My Computer Recognises it and
I am able to read the files. But it will not eject the MO Disk that is in there.
The drive spins up and then the LED on the front of the drive goes from green
to red. And the drive stops and starts to spin up again and the light goes back
to green this happens if I press the eject button on the drive or if I select
eject in windows. I was told to increases the time out on the SCSI card but this
dose not resolve the problem.
Has anyone had a similar issue or is my drive Maxoptix
t5-2600 on its way out?
As far as I know the green led means "write" & red led means "read". Don't increase time out on the SCSI card . If you press eject button wait 10 secs. If no response I think your MO drive having some problem . Or your jumper setting doesn't right.
I using t5-2600 on SunOS so I'm not exactly know what's problem on your drive. But Maxoptix MO drive very durable. I bought from ebay and manufacture date were 1999 . Oh my god . Just almost 10 years . And working good.

The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

Disk Cleanup is a file deletion utility that comes pre-installed in most Windows operating systems. It is a good, simple tool to use to free up disk space and to get rid of files that you don't need. Here are the steps to run Disk Cleanup in Windows XP:
A. Click on the Start button.
B. Click on My Computer. (If there is no My Computer icon on your Start menu, you can typically find it on the desktop.)
C. Right click on your hard drive (usually, this will be the C: drive) and select Properties.
D. Under the General tab, click the button labeled Disk Cleanup.
E. The program will take a little while to load while it figures out file sizes and locations. Once it finishes, the Disk Cleanup window will appear. The files you can delete to reclaim hard drive space are grouped by type (Temporary Internet Files, Office Setup Files, etc.) Next to each file type will be the amount of disk space you'll gain by deleting those files, and underneath the file types you can see a description of the currently-selected file type. Decide which files you can delete, and put a check mark next to those types. (If you're not sure which files are included in a certain group, you can click the View Files button below the description to see the exact files in question.)
F. Once you've selected all of the file types you want, click OK.
G. A confirmation box will appear; choose Yes to remove the files. Depending on how many files you chose to delete, the removal may go quickly or it might take a minute or two. Once it finishes, the Disk Cleanup window will close.

You must using solaris format utility to label thies T4-2600 drive. And you must put 512byte/sector MO disk into drive. for example:
1.$ su - root ;Become root user
2. # format ; identified disk
3. choose disk
4. label disk
5. if type unknow please input : type
6. choose T4-2600
8. modify disk partition
9. newfs ; ex: newfs /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0
10. mount disk
11. using MO disk like HDD
First of all, was there a reason that you wanted to reinstall windows? If you were having problems with the operating system and now upon reload the hard disk is not appearing it could mean that the disk or the system board itself is bad.
If you pull the XP disk out and just try to boot your computer up are you able to login and use your computer from the previous/original install of XP?
If so, then perhaps you're using a special hard drive controller that supports RAID. If you have a RAID controller you'll need to load the drivers of that controller on a Floppy disk. During the initial startup of the XP install it will give you the opportunity to click the F6 button on the keyboard to load additional device drivers. You want to click F6 when it prompts you at the bottom of the screen and wait for it to prompt you to put your floppy disk (with the RAID controller drivers) in the floppy drive.
Hope this helps. If you need more help just let me know.
