I have windows XP home edition and just reformatted computer. now the computer will not recognize the Maxtor 3200 personal storage device

Until you put an Operating System, Windows, Linux etc, on the formatted drive, it will NOT recognize the drive, it will not recognize anything...

How can i install the maxtor personal storage 3200? are there any drivers that i need to install?

You do not need any driver. This device is plug and play in Windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif XP. If it doesn't work then you probably have a USB problem. Have you checked in Device Manager to insure the usb port is working properly and is compatible with the drive, eg: usb 2.0 or usb 1.1?

for any further information refer to this link :

Damn windows wont detect it

Seagte purchased Maxtor in 2006. They kept the group that supported these products intact. Check Seagate's support site for specific information and/or contact Seagate's support group. They should be able to help you. The website is: As a last resort, you can get a free replacement from Seagate via their warranty repair group. They track via serial numbers, so no receipts should be needed.
