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.

My Maxtor 3200 possibly has failed. The green light does not come on and my computer no longer shows it connector asa ext HD. Any recommendations.


I agree that it has failed.

Get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive (by opening the enclosure) and use the "check warranty status" utility on Maxtor's web-site, to see if the warranty still is valid. If it is, Maxtor will repair/replace the unit, at minimal cost to you.

I have Windows XP with service pack 3. My system no longer recognizes the Maxtor 3200 external hard drive. Do I need to get an updated driver to the hard drive? When I first connected the Maxtor HD. ...


When you plug in via USB, does the USB recognize it and not display as HDD? If that is the case, then it's probably disabled somehow. Access Computer management, and check from there.

If that doesn't work, try on a different computer. If it doesn't work, your HDD has gone faulty. And if you recently changed your board, make sure you have a high speed USB port.

Try connecting the Maxtor to another computer and if it functions normally, then backup your data. Then try formating the Maxtor on your computer.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

No power in my Maxtor 3200 external HD


Maxtor hard drives have sometimes have problems. When you say it didn't work, can you here the drive spinning? Do you feel a G effect if up pick up the drive? Are any lights on? If all these are no then the unit is dead. Now all may not be lost. This drive may be able to be slaved to another and then accessed to remove your data. Do you have the capability of removing the drive from the case and slaving it to another CPU? If not then the unit needs to see a reputable repair person.

Maxtor 3200 harddrive broken


First thing First, detect and isolate the problem:

take the HD and connect it to the computer (DATA AND POWER CABLES right connected) and see if Operative System detects it and you can partition, format and write and move data to and inside it without problems.

If you can and the system works OK with that... your HD is working so take a breath. If not... you HD is down and well... there is not much to do without expending money.

If you succeed, just try powering your case without the HD and of course with the right power supply... the one that comes with the case. if the case can be powered for a few hours with no problems nor rare noises... connect the HD to it and try.

The info you are giving is very incomplete, I don`t know what you did, what system are you operating, Do not know what you know about computers, so I do not know what to explain and what you know already.

Good Luck
