Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
I just got the maxtor external hard drive and as soon as i hooked it up it worked fine, the computer recognized the harddrive so i transfered all my files onto the drive, than the next day i turned it on, and noticed that the computer did not show up on "my computer"....
So i thought maybe if i install the software it will show....but after installing..no luck
i changed the usb port to see and still the problem reoccured
to make sure i hooked it up on another computer it didn't recognize...
I will tell you how to solve it, but this will void your warranty!
I had the same problem. What i was intended to open the box take the HD and use it as an internal HD.
When I opened the box I saw the HD jumpers were set on Cable Select I picked the jumper and plugged it to Master. Plugged it back to AC power and USB. It works. I donno why but it just worked.

I had a similar problem with my pc( OS=XP SP2) with the same external drive model. I was able to solve it by downloading and installing WindowsXP-KB908673-x86-ENU Hotfix Package from Microsoft Corporation. I hope it works for you.
