1 Answer

Maxtor personal storage 3200 200 GB hard-drive does not show up in my computer

One user (Colin S.) posted this problem, and i have the same problem. however, the solution provided did not work. "The Maxtor drive shows up under "Disk drives" in the Device Manager and according to the status is working properly. However I cannot access the drive as it does not show up in My Computer. I have uninstalled and installed in device manager but it makes no difference. Habe also disabled/enabled but to no effect. Can anyone suggest a solution?"

    This is a logical disk manager problem

    Seagate has a software resolve and it is $129.00

    This is extortion from seagate to get your data back

    there is a link on segates web site to download a demo

    program that gives you the ability to see all your files

    the problem is with the software on the drive not your computer

The volume partition may be failing. So your machine can see the drive but you still cannot read or write to it. I would open it and extract the drive, to eliminate whether the drive and / or enclosure is at fault.

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

Check the manufacturers website, as all drives no matter what should come with drivers of some sort. this is the most likely cause for what is wrong.
