It probably is but it is an expensive procedure. Try ERS data recovery services: 1.888.248.3148, they are good!

What does blinking green light on Maxtor 3200 mean?


Typically, if your seeing that green light, it means you don't have enough power from your power supply. You may need to disconnect some of the other components for the drive to boot up. Ultimately, if you want to continue using the new drive, you'll need to replace out the power supply with a larger one.

Good Luck

One bad or faulty lead connection can cause a computer to continue restarting on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


hope this helps

I pluged in wrong power supply to external hardrive there is a light flashing so there is power but my laptop cannot find drive can i retrieve my data


The drives in these units are pretty standard SATA or PATA drives.
Personally, to retrieve data in these situations, since it's the USB converter board that is likely damaged, I open up the box and take out the drive, and put it into a PC that's running MACDrive (software that lets a PC use a MAC formatted drive)
You may however simply be able to get another external drive enclosure (about $20 USD such as THESE) and put the drive into it and be up and running again on the MAC with the old drive in the new enclosure.

My iMac does not recognize the Lacie 1tb big disk extreme external hard drive. No icon appears.


Hello,
the first step will be to verify your power supply. When it is plugged to the wall power outlet, it should be silent (no hissing or high pitch noise) and the green light should be on on the power supply.. If it is not the case, replacing it might solve your problems.
Second step is to verify if it is an interface problem. Try using a different port on the drive.
If no success, start Disk Utility and look to the left if you have any mention of a drive of 1TB. If you do, the partition of your drive might be corrupted. You can try running First Aid from Disk utility if its available, else you will need to try a partition repair software or a Data recovery program.
There are a few available that you can get a free copy to see if the data is available before you buy.
Regards,

There is not much you can do except try some other data recovery companies.
If your data is very important, in future you should consider doing data backups on a daily basis and/or build a fail safe computer or server system using RAID hard drives configured as a mirrored hard drives or a RAID 5 system with hot swappable hard drives. Also consider installing a UPS (uninterruptable power supply) to prevent a computer and server shutting down from power outages as this can will corrupt your data.
I hope you will take this advice seriously.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

Hello,

There are only two ways this can go for you.

One- you need a new power supply

OR

Two, you need a new mother board

You can verify the power supply by checking it on another machine

If the power suppy is good

And you do not hear the bios beep- then you are looking at a new motherboard- I would double check the powersupply first- most stores that sell them will let you check before you buy a new powersupply.
