Maxtor Personal Storage - beeping noise

Whenever i plug the hard drive into a power outlet, it makes a beeping noise. the sound repeats itself whenever i connect it to my PC...

I know must have been damaged since it fell from my computer desk on to the floor but is there any possible way to fix it or even just get my files back?

Maxtor personal storage 3200 stopped being recognised, clicking sound coming from box

The clicking sound from a hard drive is known as "The click of death". This drive is faulty and if you need data off this hard drive then there are companies that can recover data off a faulty hard drive BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Why does my maxtor 3200 has a burning smell when i


you can only recover the files on your hard drive, provided its not damaged.

If the case connector of your hard drive is bad, you can simply get another case and continue using your drive.

But if the hard drive itself is the one that has a burnt smell, then I am afraid you cannot recover you information on it.

If your hard drive still spins and kind of vibrates, then its still work, but if its making a cracking noise, then the hard drive is spoilt.

So maybe you should look for a drive case connector and test the Hard Drive.

I wish you all the best.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.

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.

Beeping, not showing on computer

Its beeping because its damaged! sad to say but the beeping is an error code! the other downside is hard drives are hard to repair so you may need to buy a new one.
