Senior Technical Consultant

Maxtor shows zero volume where 100gb of a 120gb drive existed. I heard clicking sounds and backed up only 20.2 gb before total failure. Is there a motor kit that I can use to repair

I have a Maxtor onetouch 4. I want to use it as an external hard drive. Windows explorer recognizes it but when I try to copy files to it, it says the drive is write protected. I down loaded the Maxtor...


That's because the software it comes with unlocks the drive to do backups. You should be able to format the drive in windows and then it should work fine for your purposes.
Right Click the Drive, Select Format, give it a volume name if you want and select quick format. Leave everything else default.

MAXTOR 250 gb usb hard disk is not detected


On some computers the output power of the USB ports is too low to drive the Ext. HDD.

Have you tried other USB ports on your computer?

Get yourself a powered USB hub and try that, borrow one if possible, if that works get one for yourself....

Windows xp shows hard drive as 30g. I have diamond max plus 9 120gb model 6y120PO s/n y25W76E bios shows maxtor 6y120PO capacity 33821mb


It is probably partitioned. Right click on "my computer" select "Manage" and then look at the disk manager. You will find that the rest of the drive is there, but un partitioned and un formatted.

Computers do not recognize Maxtor


This isn't a solution, but will give you more information about whether you can recover the data. If your computer recognizes the drive when you insert it, but doesn't assign it a letter, you can probably recover much of the data.

For XP: Click on "Start"-"Settings"-"Control Panel", and select "Administrative Tools". If you don't have that menu, there are other ways to get into the control panel, depending on how you've configured your OS.

Click on "Computer Management" (on the right window), then "Disk Management" (on the right again). This shows a picture of each of the hard drives on your system. The "Volume" shows the letter assigned. If you unplug the hard drive, and then plug it back it, you can easily tell which volume is being added or removed.

If you can right click on the volume, it may be a simple matter of running "checkdisk" to fix any errors (click properties, and see if that is an option in the "Tools" tab). If all the options are disabled, the drive has been corrupted. However, you may still be able to recover the data with a data recovery program (I have R-Studio, but there are a lot of others out there). If the drive doesn't show up at all, you'll probably need a professional.

Note: If you have a lot of drives, you may just need to free up a drive letter to be able to see the drive. You can right click, and if "Change drive letter/path" is enabled, try that.

One hard drive failure mode is a power circuit short. Contact MAXTOR support on their web site for a possible warranty replacement. BTW, SEAGATE owns MAXTOR now.
