Hi there,

Here are a few things to try. If you have access to a secondary PC or laptop, try connecting your drive to it using a different USB cable. Also try unplugging your drive from the power outlet for a few seconds and then connecting it again. If it?s still not being recognized, Maxtor has a free utility called PowerMax (available at www.maxtor.com) that lets you run various tests on your drive till it identifies the problem.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Have you tried looking in 'MY COMPUTER' and look at the mass storage devices ie. C drive, D drive, F drive, H drive.......
Explore/Expand these drives to see what is on them. If you know what is already on this drive then you should see the data you are after and you will have discovered the drive.

With the drive connected and if you are running USB2 You should see this drive disapear from the list as you disconnect it.

Maxtor 3200 200 gig not recognized


When your drive is in RAW format, the best thing you can do is try to recover the files and then get the hard drive replaced. I would recommend trying the trial version of this program: http://www.recovermyfiles.com

If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll see if I can come up with another way to solve the problem

Maxtor and vista


Try some other USB device (memory-stick, printer, camera) in the USB slot in the Vista computer, just to "prove" that Vista will recognize _any_ USB device connected to that slot.
