Question about Maxtor Shared Storage II (S01R320) Hard Drive
My Maxtor Shared Storage II, 1TB has worked reasonably well for a year; however, one day it decided to not turn off when i asked it to. I unplugged the power supply and now the only thing I get is a flashing green light on the front panel at the top, occasionally it flashes amber too. The other two lights below are on and off intermittently.

drives dead. Head crash problem.
The read head, has clattered the disk(s)
the only other option is to swap the logic boards over ( if they,re identical ) ** circuit boards on the drives**

Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be
1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

i had the same problem and eventually fixed it by deleting all the user accounts (except the admin one) on my MSSII. It looks like one of them somehow had these files open
