Question about Maxtor Shared Storage II (S01R320) Hard Drive

Open Question

I have a Maxtor Shared Storage II attached to my Macbook by a crossover cable. I am running windows 7 and upon fresh install the drive worked perfectly without the easymanage software. However, it now fails to detect the drive even with easymanage. I am starting to see this as a common problem, are there any solutions? Thanks

SOURCE: Unable to see Shared Storage Drive II on EasyManage via Wireless

Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be

1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
Other suggestions

This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

Hi. I configured my Maxtor Shared Storage II with my home PC. Now the PC is dead. I tried to connect the other my PC (with Windows 7 as operating system) to Maxtor Shared Storage II, but the PC cannot see...


try and assign the drive a drive letter by right clicking on my computer and choose manage.
go to disk management
look for the maxtor hard drive.
if you see it listed there below you should be able to right click on it and assign a drive letter.
if you dont see it then it doesn't detect the hard drive. please check your hard drive connections and try again.

Trying to get my maxtor II to work with windows 07 software but it wont read the usb connection? After i have installed the software for maxtor.


Check Control Panel, System, Device Manager and make sure windows see's the connection. If you see a yellow triangle, that means the drivers are not correct. If you don't see it at all, that is a problem. Give Maxtor a call. You may need to update your motherboard bios, chipset drivers. At worst, you might have a problem with the motherboard or maxtor II device.

Can't find the IP address of the Maxtor Shared storeage II drive.


Download and install Wireshark(www.wireshark.org) on your PC. Attach the storage box and your PC and nothing else to a switch. Start a capture and you'll start to see all of the packets that your PC sees on its network interface. They will include a column for source address. The one that doesn't match your PC has to be the storage box.

If this doesn't help, connect the two devices directly together(you'll need a crossover cable if your PC NIC doesn't support MDIX and try the Wireshark capture again - this WILL work. The first option is dependent on the storage box sending out some sort of broadcast packets which is likely but not certain.

Windows repeats 'new hardware found' when I attch my maxstor One touch II


The reason is simple, your Maxtor drive "does not" support Windows-ME. Since Windows-ME is not supported by your Maxtor drive the drivers dont get resolved and will never get installed. FYI - Windows-ME is almost 10 years old. What makes you think Maxtor will support Windows-ME?

If the .avi file was encoded using divX compression, you will need to install a codec. Try going here to install the xvid codec and run the avi file just like you would an mpeg. Hope that helps!
