"Joecolvette" has probably got it right, I've seen this before. The HDD enclosure circuit board has a fault. Can be resolved by replacing the enclosure. Plenty on ebay, just ensure you buy one with the correct HDD interface (Sata or IDE).
Alternatively, if you have a tower with a spare port, you could take the HDD out of the caddy, install it in the tower as a "Slave" (check jumper settings) ensuring the system drive is set to "Master". Then you can check whether the HDD itself is at fault.
- Make sure that the hard drive (HD) is properly connected to the computer.
- Try connecting it to a different computer to make sure that the HD is the problem.
- Check the Disk Management in your computer to see if the HD could still be detected. Once detected, reformat the HD and it should work again.
To check the Disk Management:
NOTE: Make sure that the external HD is connected and turned ON.
1. Right-click "My Computer" (XP) or "Computer" icon (Vista) 2. Select Manage and click on "Disk Management". 3. From the Disk Management, you will see a drive letters 4. Write down all the drive letters and then disconnect the Maxtor HD from the computer. 5. If there's a drive letter that disappears, then that is your Maxtor HD. 6. Reconnect the Maxtor HD and reformat it. You may right-click the drive letter and there's an option to format the HD.
If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned on, mostly, it's already defective.
Did you try to copy one picture file to your mini harddrive then change it properties to archieve only? After that you can rotate it freely without that annoying message.
If that does not go as expected. Could be virus infection. Both your miniharddrive and your computer is infected. Some do it by changing it properties to read only then hide it.
You should first start disinfecting. The files can be view by clicking tools in My computer then set to view hidden files then start exploring your minihard drive. Some infection only affects picture files.
Can you recall what you were doing when you first got that error message? Try disconnecting the drive and then reconnecting it. If you still get the same message, check the Maxtor utility to see if there is some type of repair procedure that you can do without reformatting it.
Well, since you are discarding the case, use a small flat head screw driver or something to pry the case open. Once inside, the HD will be plugged in to a circuit board and screwed in place. Unscrew it and carefuly unplug the HD from the circuit board. Then you can transfer it to another external HD housing.
