I have a Maxtor 500GB. It was working ok but today the green light is blinking and the external memory is not conected with the computer. I have tried using different USB ports, conecting an desconecting...

you could disassemble the case and remove the drive. it could then be connect via an external controller such as( and test if the drive itself is good in which case it is the controller in the case.
cheapest way I can think of to diagnose these external enclosures

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 problem!!!

First, try another USB Cable. If that does not work properly then I would suspect the box or the drive has failed. If you just bought it, return it to the store and complain. They may replace it. As for your data?

Now if you want to become techie you can remove the hard drive from the box and attach it to you computer either copy the files back if you do not have them on your computer or format the drive if you have your files. Then put the drive back in the box and try to get a refund or buy a different external. I like a metal box with an AC cord plug. Best of luck.

MAXTOR 1TB not recognised by XBOX 360

see if there any updates for the xbox 360 in terms of flashing the bios or something along those lines - not sure if you can get into the configuration to alter any settings regarding or relating to detection of hard drives.

My maxtor 200GB drive is not recognized by my CPU anymore!

Hi Crkinard.. i think you shuld first find out whether the problem is with the external device or your computer... so check if the device is recognised by another system... as you have been using the device dor couple of years i think yours computer's drive for external devices should have been corupted.. so check out the device with some other computer.. if it is recognised in that computert then you can easily reinstalled the software for your device again..

do you have an operating system installed on your C drive? if you have windows xp installed it should detect the external drive after you connect it, you may need to install the driver also. Check maxtors site for the latest software

Maxtor 3200 power supply problem

I plugged a HP laptop charger into the drive and all it did was flash, bought a new housing and no luck. Data recovery sites said that it sounded like hardware trouble and the recovery minimum is $800. I did some more searching and found a site called PCB Solutions that sells the circuit board. You have to provide all of the specs. for the drive. The cost was $39 and I received it in 4 days. I replaced the board and the drive worked and I recovered all of my data. The URL is:
