Try opening some files saved in your usb. Example if you have files saved in excel format, open your excel program then click in open files and select files saved in your usb. You will be able to open the files in excel using this method. You can do the same for any file you want to open. The downside is you cannot open the whole usb file and navigate or explore as usual.

I have a Kingston 2.GB Data Traveler filled with data, and no instructions on how to open it to read it. Please tell me how to open. Thank you.


Your USB drive should show up under My computer. Double click on my computer and look for an icon that says something like mass storage device. The drive should be E: or above. If you double click on that icon, everything saved to the drive should show up just like any other harddrive. You can drag items to or from this drive.

It sounds like the BIOS is set to auto-boot from the USB device.
Have you reset the 'boot order' in the BIOS?

Also if you are still running sp2 go to Microsoft update and install the updates. You should be running on service pack 3.
(the updates are free, and are more secure than sp2)

Bought a Creative I/O USB2.0 to SATA/IDE Cable to retrieve files from an old harddrive and put on my new harddrive. When I plug the system in, my mouse doesn't work properly. Mouse arrow struggles to move....


This is most likely a defective adapter cable. I just bought this same cable and it was dead-on-arrival. The customer reviews on Newegg have about 30% negative reviews for it. Seems the power supplies are subject to failure quite often.

Although, if you are getting the transfer to work, you may just be saturating the USB bus. If this is the case, then when the transfer is done your mouse should go back to working ok. It's better to not try using your computer during a harddrive transfer anyways.

Maxtor 3200


Seagate troubleshooting Error Code 10, states that drive has failed. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

Before you resign yourself to everything is lost on this harddrive, how about trying one more thing?

How about putting the harddrive inside in a new external enclosure, and see if it works? I suggest that perhaps the external enclosure it's in, is bad.
The harddrive inside is a 3.5 inch harddrive. Same width as used by a desktop computer. It is a Sata harddrive.

Here's an example of a 3.5 inch Sata, external enclosure,
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3901268&CatId=2780
Just pop the external enclosure open that holds it now, take it out, and install it into an external enclosure like the example above. Plug in the USB cable.

Don't know if this applies to your particular Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, but when I went to search for the type of harddrive it uses just now, I ran into thsi, and thought I would pass it along. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/personal_storage/ps3200-sw)
