I have an IMAC and our Maxtor 500G external hard drive is not being detected when we connect. It was previously connected to a windows PC, how do we connect this to the mac to access files. Currently when...


Connect it to a PC. If it still does not work, then it's time to disassemble the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a compatible replacement disk-drive, install it, to "reconstitute" your external storage device.

Take the model-number and serial-number from the old disk-drive, and check Maxtor's web-site, to see if the warranty is still valid.
If so, then Maxtor will replace the disk-drive, at no cost to you.

Pc is not detecting maxtor 3100 200 gb drive


This is very comon at times as i have also confronted with such issue on pc's having Maxtor as external drive. Here we have two things to check and understand.

1) Is the Bios Detecting this hardware. Or is it that the basic Motherboard itself is not accepting the HDD.

2) The version of OS you are running and if the pug and play is able to detect the Hardware as the second stage of detection.

Do you see any hardware detection notification when you connect the HDD or when you Start running the HDD ?

I would like you to check these which will give you a clear picture of the issue.

Else please write back.. I would like to know th OS version which you are using. The Hardware on which the HDD is connected. Motherboard Specs, and also the messages or notifcations that you might be getting while trying to connect the Hard Disk. Good Luck.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

Installing the external drive


In XP and Vista no need to install.
They will detect automatically.
To know, goto Windows explorer.
Find drive letter other than your local drive.
Usually called "removable disk".

I have a maxtor basics desktop hard drive and when i plug it in and connect the usb the pc does not recognize it... what's wrong?


Are you attempting to detect new hardware? A lot of times you need to go into the control panel and run the hardware detection wizard.

Alternatively, you can check Maxtor's website and see if a special driver is needed, and install that, then detect hardware.

The last solution I have is to leave it plugged in and reboot your computer. Windows will do an auto detect upon log in, and might be able to find it that way.
