Question about Hard Drives
I cannot unlock my Maxtor!!! I have my password but it will not accept it. Problem may have occured when Maxtor was unplugged and turned off for a time. I may have added to the password when it was reinstalled. I can't remember the original! Senior moment I guess!! Can I reprogram it with a new password?
You will need
1. Windows 98 se bootdisk
Make a windows 98 se bootdisk
copy the atapwd files in there
Unlock the harddrive.

I had the same problem. What I did was install the Maxtor drivers twice, then shut down the computer. Restarted the computer. Then, with the computer on, I unplugged the drive firewire, waited 15 seconds, plugged the firewire back in, then pushed the one touch button. Windows then recognized it in about 1 minute. I still have a locked drive icon but I also have the drive now recognized with a new drive letter.
