Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

Maxtor 3000LE makes noise and will not show up on my computer

I have a Maxtor Personal Storage 3000LE. A couple of weeks it started making a loud ticking noise, and now it will not show up on my computers, neither on my MacBook nor on my Hewlett Packard pc. Is there anything I can do to access the data on the Maxtor disk myself, or do I need a data recovery specialist? Thank you in advance.

    Hi, and thanks for the answer. That was what I suspected. I unplugged the drive as soon as the noise started. So now it's off to see the doctor. I guess that will not be cheap, but at least my husband hopefully has learned his lesson about backups in the future. :-)

You will need a data recovery specialist. Hard drives making noise need to be taken apart and put into a special machine to pull what data is not damaged. The more you leave the drive on or play with it the more data is destroyed.

Beeping, not showing on computer


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.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 200 GB hard-drive does not show up in my computer


The volume partition may be failing. So your machine can see the drive but you still cannot read or write to it. I would open it and extract the drive, to eliminate whether the drive and / or enclosure is at fault.
