My desk top crashed and I have all my files backed up on a Maxtor 3200. How do I down load my backup files from my Maxtor 3200 to my new lap top. I can't find any paper work for it.


Just plug into your laptop and find the drive for it, then enter into the files that you want to put on your laptop.
Copy and paste these files into your laptop hard drive, don't cut and paste just copy and paste them.

That way you will always have them incase your laptop should go down.

Hope this helped.

I have 3 maxtor 3200 storage units. A few days ago my computer would not start up so after unpluging the 3200 and everything else I got the computer to work again. Plugging in the mouse,keyboard,zip drive...

could be a software issue could be that the when you unpluged them you didnt unmount the drives from the system and now windows is not finding them for this reason the best way to "try" to fix this issue is to plug them in one at a time go into device manager and uninstall them from the computer then turn the computer off unplug the drive turn the computer back on without the unit pluged in turn the computer off again plug the unit in restart the computer this will work on 75% of the drives that can't be seen

Maxtor 3200 personal storage will not load on my computer or any computer tried 2 other laptops - it was working but had to turn off desktop computer due to storm & then when computer was turned back...

Did you unplug the power supply for the computer and external drive seperately or simply turn off the computer? If the lights do not com on as expected for the Maxtor drive then the power supply for the drive may have been damaged. If the do it may just be an untimely failure in the drive. Did you shutdown the computer via windows or just "pull the plug" when it started storming? Fill me in on these details and I will help you narrow down the source of the problem. Chris

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.

If you did in fact change the partioning structure then the only recourse is to send the drive to a data recovery center. If the drive is running they should be able to recover the data.
