Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I am trying to connect my Maxtor N256 (Model 54098H8) to my new Dell Inspiron with Vista using an IDE to USB 2.0 cable.
I can see it in the Device Manager under 'Disk Drives' and 'USB' but can't see it in my Windows Explorer.
The Maxtor gave me trouble on my old computer and cannot start into Windows anymore. I think the registry is corrupted.
All I want to do is recover photos and other important documents from the Maxtor and then reinstall Win98SE so my son can simply use it for games, etc.
If anyone can help, you would make me a happy man!
Thank you very much in advance.
So donot take any action to your Maxtor and Try to find a DR company and recovery the data.Maybe the firmware is having some problems.Usually the tools called HD Doctor from SalvationDATA can deal with the firmware problems.
