Its beeping because its damaged! sad to say but the beeping is an error code! the other downside is hard drives are hard to repair so you may need to buy a new one.

I have an IMAC and our Maxtor 500G external hard drive is not being detected when we connect. It was previously connected to a windows PC, how do we connect this to the mac to access files. Currently when...


Connect it to a PC. If it still does not work, then it's time to disassemble the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a compatible replacement disk-drive, install it, to "reconstitute" your external storage device.

Take the model-number and serial-number from the old disk-drive, and check Maxtor's web-site, to see if the warranty is still valid.
If so, then Maxtor will replace the disk-drive, at no cost to you.

I have maxtor basic 500G ex works fine when I plug into old laptop with XP, but when I plug in to new laptop with Windows 7 it says I have to format drive..Why is this?


Try opening the device manager and changing device removal policy to "Better Performance" (remember to always safely remove the device afterwards or you'll likely lose data).

Also, verify that the partition type is recognized in Local Computer > Drive Management and the drive letter doesn't conflict with anything else.

Installing the external drive


In XP and Vista no need to install.
They will detect automatically.
To know, goto Windows explorer.
Find drive letter other than your local drive.
Usually called "removable disk".

Maxtor 3200 beeps but doesn't work


The heads are riding on the platers. The drive is dead and not worth trying to fix. If there is data on it that you simply can not lose do a google search for "data recovery failed harddrive". The rule of thumb for a decent lad that can do this is price, if it costs less then 75$ per meg they probably are not that good.

Try it out with another computer and see if it's working or not, if not try with a spare usb cable because maybe that's the case or try it out with a different kind of cable if possible like esata or firewire if possible, if still nothing, than bring it back to the shop in warranty, and maybe consider to try to get a different drive wich is made by the manufacturer who did the HDD inside it.
You can find Seagate, Western Digital and Maxtor (Maxtor is owned by Seagate) for soure.
If it turns out that it's an OSX problem than another expert is more than wellcome to sort it out.

Maxtor 3200 beeps but doesn't work


I have the same problem with an Iomega. After searching for a while i finally found this case report:
http://www.iomegasupportforums.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=15560&view=next&sid=8fcaf3c05f1bae35c079433c553ee28b
It seems that there is an "Onboard controller failure. It's not putting the drives in JBOD and only displaying one physical drive to your computer. You need to contact technical support about a replacement."
So it seems to be software but it still is a pain in the **** to repair/replace. But maxtor/iomega can charge whatever for a repair because your data is priceless right? sucks
