SOURCE: What is the master password for a Maxtor QuickView

In all honesty Hard drives do not have any passwords. Maybe you need to re-declre ownership of the contents inside the disk to gain access to the files.
Microsoft windows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421
Mac os X: highlight the drive and press +i to "get info" the last patch of settings on the window is permissions add yourself to the permissions of your maxtor drive with read/write/access and apply to all enclosed items. close the window. eject the drive, re-connect and get your files.

Windows Xp Setup Problem : "setup cannot access the disk". I have HDD: Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 80GB ATA/133 HDD.


try doing a F disk on the hard drive first then format it and make it the active drive and then try installing the xp software. if it has had another operating system say for instance windows ME it will not install on that drive without removing it. You can also go to www.maxtor.com and download their free hard drive tools to see if there is a problem that thier software can fix. the software is for free.

Windows xp shows hard drive as 30g. I have diamond max plus 9 120gb model 6y120PO s/n y25W76E bios shows maxtor 6y120PO capacity 33821mb


It is probably partitioned. Right click on "my computer" select "Manage" and then look at the disk manager. You will find that the rest of the drive is there, but un partitioned and un formatted.

I need a driver for xp professional Where can I download one. Model 6l080L0sn L25DEJEG


Windows XP should automatically detect the hard drive. There should be no reason for a driver, however software to format and backup your drive can be found at Maxtor. It is important to format the drive before it is used.
