Question about Maxtor DiamondMax 10 6V160E0 160 GB Hard Drive
I recently had a Maxtor hard drive that would not boot(BSOD). The drive would just click but then bsod. I sent it to Seagate Recovery for an estimate for getting my data back. The price tag was too high($2500) so I declined and asked them to ship the hard drive back to me. I intalled a new WD hard drive and fresh copy of WinXP SP3. After booting the computer I connected the faulty hard drive and it was recongnized. Problem is when I try to access it I get the message(H:\ access denied), also when I look into the properties of this drive it shows(0 bytes available, 0 bytes used, and raw format. I need a solution to access this drive.
I have the exact same problem with my Maxtor 10 6B160P0 - though mine is in an external closure. One day it just stopped working. The drive is recognised, but I can not access it. I have been spinning about the net for a solution, and apparently this is a common problem with Maxtor 7200 ata-drives. It seems that the problem is caused by a corrupt firmware - which maxtor has installed on the inner rims of the drive. Apparently a firmware-update should mitigate the problem, and save your data - however, I have not come across instructions on how to perform the firmware update yet. If anyone knows this, please tell!

The drive is dead. Here is a solution that is not guaranteed to work but worth a try. Place the drive into a Ziploc bag and then place that into 2nd Ziploc bag, place into the freezer for 48 hours allowing the drive to get good and cold, once the drive is cold before removing from the freezer get computer ready to back up the files needed on the drive. I have had this work but only for about 30 minutes at a time max so plan on 15 - 20 as your target. Also keep in mind I have never had this work more than once so target critical files first. If this does work please rate.....
