Question about Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200 Hard Drive
I recently purchased a Maxtor Basics 1Tb external hard drive, and have transferred ALL MY FAMILY'S PHOTO'S to it. It was working fine for a few days but then one morning Windows didn't detect it, and the LED kept flashing green. I then tried accessing it from another computer running Ubuntu, which i had done before, but this didn't work either.
I am desperate please help!
my 1TB external hard drive flashes green and makes a beep every 3 seconds when I put my ear to it, I have ALL my important files on there, it worked a second ago too, if its broke Im screwed...I can't risk re-formating it, and even doing that is impossible as windows wont detect it now...
Option 01. try the unit on another windows pc. if its the same. i am afraid you might have an issue with the device.
option 2 . you could remover the **** from the enclosure & fix it directly to the pc so that you can retrive the data. however this will have an impact on your warranty

Very odd! What happens if you try and save a file? You say you have 'looked all over' but have you been to look in Device Manager?
Start>Control Panel>System>device manager>disk drives. If has a disk drive showing is there a Red cross or Yellow ! mark? If not right click on disk drives and look at properties.
Then come back and update us please.
