Your bios will not handle 500gb's until you flash it with an update that will except it. Just go to the manufacture website and search for it.

Try this:

1. Turn off the power supply to the hard drive.
2. Turn off your PC/laptop.
3. Connect the hard drive to the PC/laptop.
4. Turn on both devices.

It worked with mine.


You could also try installing Seagate Manager which can check for errors on the drive.

I had a similar problem a month ago. Go to the Seagate site(They own Maxtor now) http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/ Click on the Customer Service and support link, then the warranty link. Supply the serial number and they'll give you the warranty info. I got an RMA number from the site, and received my (Refurbished) drive in about 10 days. They supplied a box to return the original drive, and I apid the postage. A very quick, easy and satisfactory exchange.
