Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
Hey i had this hard drive for a while are all of a sudden it is not recognized, when i plug in the usb nothing happens. My computer does not even its there there is no noise coming from the hard drive, the light is on but nothings happening. I took it to a friends computer and chimes when it's plugged in, but it does not appear as a drive. If any can help me let me know.
Well all good things must end and it sounds like this one has. If it doesn't connect in either computer then something inside has either been bumped loose or it's broken.

Good day sir/maam, I had the same problem with my generic external drive, keeps blinking but cant be recognized by the PC. chances are the Maxtor is done, you can salvage the Hard disk inside. Visit your dealer if its under warantee demand for a replacement they may also have service people to take a look at the drive. hope this helps
