SOURCE: Drive won't start
Hi I understand your problem, You said that you checked in device manger,it didn't started. Did you checked whether is it detected BIOS. If its not try connecting the IDE cable for the CD Drive,if you found the drive detected in My Computer. Then there is no issues with the Hard Drive,something needs to be checked in Motherboard port. You can contact your computer manufacture to get replacement of motherboard...

Re-connect the hdd to pc. Go into Device Manager and select Disk Management. If the HDD is displayed here, see what options are available prior to a re-Format. Hope this helps...

How to open the enclosure
You will need a long flat piece of metal.
On the sides of the enclosure are small slits.
If you look in the slits diagonally you will see a metal tab.
Slide the metal tabs about 1/4" towards the ends of the case. (there are 4 slides one on each corner)
The case will now open freely.

"Any suggestions?" ... Yes. Here's a quick few:
If it's showing in your WinXP's "Device Manager", try reinitializing it.
1. Select the device (maxtor 3200 160gb), then right-click > "Uninstall" it.
2. Reboot (instead of rebooting, you may also simply do a menubar > "Actions" > "Scan for hardware changes". However, if you haven't already rebooted since problem was recognized, this is a good time to do it now. If left un-done, you'd be amazed how often that one action alone will work wonders).
If that brings no joy, see if the drive is reflected in your "Disk Management" console [Start > Run... > type "diskmgmt.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"].
If it's not there, your registry is probably configured to "hide" (not display) the specific drive letter assigned to this drive. You can both check and correct this by getting "TweakUI". Download it here http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/TweakUI.shtml. After it downloads, launch it, then ensure the subject drive letter is checked ON [TweakUI > left colunm "My Computers" > "Drives"].
Good luck, and post back with a status report and/or any further questions.

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.
