Sounds bad. Could be a headcrash very very likely the case if the drive was dropped., will need to be sent to maxtor for repair, can you send me the following from the drive:

Serial number:
Model number:
Part Number:
and the country you are in:

The 3 numbers generally read on the drive.

If this is a external hard drive thats in a case, don't open it. Instead check if its on warranty or not? do you have a receipt? how old is it?

Hi Jane,
If you are using Windows as an operation system, you can try to install the HDD manually

Click on the Start button
Right click on My Computer
click on properties at the bottom
look for the Hardware tab and click on it
look for the Device Manager button and click
look for Action in the top menu
then scan for new hardware

If this does not work, look on the Device Manager screen and you will see + Disk Drives
click on the + and it will list the drives that it sees
if you see the external HDD uninstall it and reboot

Hope this helps

Maxtor 320 GB mini not working


If it shows up as a USB mass storage device it:-
1. Has power
2. It is connected to the computer via USB.
3.The correct software has been loaded for the hard drive. 
The beep sound is probably an error message saying that the drive is not responding properly inside the case.

Hard drives Drives have been known to stick or not start up due to power cables or ribbon cables being dislodged. Try pushing these back into place.

If this is not the problem go to the Maxtor site (maxtor.com) and report the problem with the drive, not the USB which appears to functioning correctly.

Hard drive dropped, now not working


The beeping/clicking sound usually means your hard drive isnt far from "death."
You should be backing up all your data and yes, you can find people who get info back from hard drives, but this is very expensive.
