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.

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

Computer will not recognise external hard drive


Here are a few things to try. If you have access to a secondary PC or laptop, try connecting your drive to it using a different USB cable. Also try unplugging your drive from the power outlet for a few seconds and then connecting it again. If it?s still not being recognized, Maxtor has a free utility called PowerMax (available at www.maxtor.com) that lets you run various tests on your drive till it identifies the problem.
Good luck!

My xbox 360 not able to recognize my hard drive.


Well here are few solutions:
1. You might have a modded(Flashed) console, which microsofts new fix destroys your profile/HDD/Console, so everything is gone to waste.
2. Replace your HDD, there might be a problem with it
3. Just buy a small Memory instead of a whole HDD to replace.
4. Buy a new 360.

How would you format the hard drive to change the age on a live account for the xbox 360


Hi,

you can,t. the only option is a replacement Drive.
Even then if it,s been serial Logged to M$ site. your original gamer tag et,c may still be active and logged to the console itself.
There are ways and tools to Format The drives, but has to be re-partitioned to specific sized Partitions, For The 360 to recognise It.

Maxtor hard drive xbox 360


The maxtor hard drives will work with an Xbox360 but in only one case, your xbox hard drive is linked to work only with your console and if you swapped hard drives the xbox wouldn't read it so to answer this you need to reset your Xbox 360 copy protection serial number i.e. Flashing your Xbox or Chipping it, once your Xbox is Flashed or Chipped you can use a maxtor hard drive through the SATA cable port in your Xbox
