My computer says it does not recognize the external hard drive after i have used it for several months. If i use it on another computer, will it recognize it or should i download something first?


Hello,
Install the hdd in another PC, If run well,think your OS has corrupted.
Then you should re install the OS again.Or you can restore the system

External HDD no longer recognized by new win7 PC


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

The computer doesn't recognize anymore


Hello.

Go to Maxtor's website. Download and install the driver for your specific model and operating system.

Then, see if your computer sees the drive when you connect it.

If not, there could be a problem with the drive's USB cable or the drive itself.

Also, be certain that your computer's USB ports are OK.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried right clicking on the drive and going into properties. Click on security option and make sure that all the permissions for the drive are active with the exception of special permissions. Also look at the advanced security settings and make sure that you have full control permissions. Hope this helps.

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor


If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.
