Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Maxtor 3200 320GB Not being detected

I bought my HDD about 6 months ago and it worked fine. However I lost the power cable for it and was unable to use it for about 4 months. I found one which I think was the correct one but it was not. I then found my original lead but now when I connect it to my laptop it is not detected. The green light on the side flickers and I can hear a wirring sooound like something is spinning.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I don't mind losing the data on it as long as it's fixed.

Any help would be appreciated.

    I have done this and the problem is still the same. The green light flashes and the hard drive is not detected.

    What should I do now?

    Hi,



    Yeah, I did do this. How would this have damaged the HDD though? What is a USB HDD enclosure? What would be the benifit of changing this?



    Thanks for yoour help.

If you plugged in an incorrect power cable it is very possible it could be damaged if the voltage from the incorrect cable exceeds the drive. try hooking it on another PC, to verify if it's the drive or PC

Hope this helps

    you didn't say if you connected it to a "Different" PC.. if you did and it did not work, I would buy USB hard drive enclosure and remove the drive and install into the new enclosure. and hope it is the current enclosure that is bad and not your HD





    installing on a different PC is an important step.

External HDD is not working


You probably have conficker worm because it stops your pc from reading usb's or any external HDD. Or the worm might of infected your HDD since it spreads through usb and internet. Seriously you should get your PC scanned just incase. P.S. Its just a possibility.

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.
