I have an IMAC and our Maxtor 500G external hard drive is not being detected when we connect. It was previously connected to a windows PC, how do we connect this to the mac to access files. Currently when...


Connect it to a PC. If it still does not work, then it's time to disassemble the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a compatible replacement disk-drive, install it, to "reconstitute" your external storage device.

Take the model-number and serial-number from the old disk-drive, and check Maxtor's web-site, to see if the warranty is still valid.
If so, then Maxtor will replace the disk-drive, at no cost to you.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

Maxtor come on but my pc doesn't conect to it


The controller of the Hard disk enclosure is probably dead. Also check that the hard disk is formatted and activated as a partition.

Maxtor Basics portable 320gb Mac to pc compatability problems


Hi Tys,

I had a similar issue with my Maxtor Basics portable 500GB drive. I hadn't formatted mine yet, but had heard there were issues, so decided to find out before I start. I even saw your post here looking for an answer. Finally, one of my friends told me the following solution, which worked fine for me:

Don't format the drive as any of the Mac OS Extended options, simply reformat it as MS-DOS (it should be one of the options in Disk Utilities when you choose Erase and go to the Volume Format dropdown list).

Your Mac should be able to recognise and use the drive in this format and it works for PCs. Transferring files between the two shouldn't be a problem.

A thing to note, though, is that these Maxtor drives apparently come ready-formatted as MS-DOS (mine did). But while my Mac recognised the drive, I couldn't copy files on to it. If this happens, erase this MS-DOS formatting with... MS-DOS. Don't ask me why this works, I'm not a Mac Genius, but now my Maxtor is trouble-free and can transfer files from PC to Mac and back again.

Hope this works out for ya!

K

Hi there


Hello
that depends
is the old disk a IDE disk?
do the new computer have a IDE port on the motherboard?
if so you can put it in your new computer. but you cant move your OS and use the same disk. you can use is as storage.
I quess that your new computer has sata right? and I think its a bad idea to move your maxtor disk to the new computer because it can slow your PC down.

Good luck

Hard Drive Problems


I suspect that the ribbon cable (seatbelt looking cable) in the computer has possibly come loose. Especially if both HDD's can't be seen.

Possible too that the CMOS has lost the specifications of the HDDs. Press F2 or DEL key while booting (depends on the CMOS/computer type).

Or, both hard drives have gone bad, which is unlikely that both at the same time went out.

Please rate FixYa! or clarify with more information or testing results.
