By deleting the windows partition, you may have deleted the windows compatibility. You can try and reformat a partition of the drive to a windows FAT32 I believe, but you may lose your other data.

Have you paid the one time activation fee to enable external hard drives to be connected to your DVR? Per the link below that is required first.

I have a maxtor basics external hard drive, i can not access it on my lap top but tried it on another computer and it worked, whats going on? i took the case off and its a Seagate Momentus 5400.3


Try going to"Computer Management" then "Disk management" and see if its listed there. If it is, you just might need to assign it a drive letter. Right clicking will give you the option to assign a drive letter. Hope this helps.

Maxtor hard drive


Yes it can,

The drive will have to have the current partition removed and be re-partitioned and reformatted then it will be ready for use.

If you need more info regarding the procedure, reply here with your operating system and I can give you a little more info.

I took a maxtor hard drive out of a dvr,can it be reformated to work in a computer? it's a fireball 3 ata/133 hdd 40 gb.


Yes it can,

you will need to either install it in a drive enclosure to put it on externally or you will have to install it inside your computer and connect it to the motherboard and power.

Once you're ready to go to the next step, let me know what version of windows you're using and I'll give you a short step by step.

Reformating all the time.


Get a freeware data recovery software program (google for it). Be sure not to reformat the drive or copy any other files to it.

After you recover your files, run the maxtor diagnostics on it (do a full diag procedure).

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z. You should then see a prompt like this: F3 T> If not, swap TX & RX wires. Access Level 2 (type /2): F3 T>/2 (enter) F3 2> Then spin down the (disconnected) motor: F3 2>Z (enter) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs F3 2> Very carefully, remove the cardstock that you placed between the PCB and the drive head contacts. Carefully replace and tighten the 3 loose screws. I suggest using a small piece of masking tape to help you hold the screws while you put them back in place. Then start the motor: F3 2>U (enter) Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.093 secs F3 2> Next go to Level 1 (type /1): F3 2>/1 (enter) And do a S.M.A.R.T. erase (create S.M.A.R.T. sector): F3 1>N1 (enter) Cycle power to the drive, then do partition regeneration: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter) After 15-30 seconds, you should see something like: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 10% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs Do not turn off drive until you see this message. Once seen, drive can be turned off. Power down everything, place drive back into your computer, and confirm that it's working." Thanks.
