Question about Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 200 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Obtained a used Maxtor 6Y200P0 (DiamondMax Plus9) hard drive which should have 200GB (as advertised), but only 34GB is available. Reformatted the drive, but still only has 34GB. Verified it is not a jumper, or motherboard, issue. It has been installed in the same computer with a Seagate ST380021A (Barracuda ATA IV), as master. Then, reversed master/slave settings, and still receive the same constriction. I would really appreciate some help with resolving the problem.

Hi:
You didn't say what kind of computer you are installing this drive in, or what operating system, but I can tell by your problem that you are trying to install it with a Windows xp, service pack 1 or older system disk. Often, the older windows disk will not let you see the entire contents of a large disk, and especially a problem if a smaller Hard drive is still present in the system.
A good solution to fix this problem is this:
Temporarily unplug your Seagate hard drive. Download the Maxtor installation software from their website, and then run the installation program. Once you got that, then power down the computer, and do your master slave set up again, and hopefully you will have better results

what problem, it is not shinny any more? LOL?
do say. please.
I am clueless, so far due to?
what system? PC, MAC,DVR,ext, TV, moon rocket.(LOL)
what OS?
using it as an internal drive, 2nd drive, or external.?
boot drive?


Seagate bought out MAXTOR.
that number must be a bar code, its not the product number
eg:
so tell me what it is.
as time passes, maxtor, fades to dark at SeaGate.
but this deep search nets, this, (hidden well)
http://www.seagate.com/gb/en/search/?keyword=maxtor

ive been using MAXTOR since day 1.

decodes for Maxtor :

Maxtor
xayb0

xa = drive family
- 6Y = DiamondMax(DM) Plus 9
- 6B = DM10
- 6L = DM10 RoHS compliant version
- 6H = DM11
- 7B = MaxLine(ML)III
- 7L = MLIII RoHS compliant
- 7H = ML Pro
- 4R = DM16
- 2F = Fireball 3
- 6E = DM Plus 8
- 5A = ML II
- 7Y = ML Plus II
y = the capacity of the disk, in gigabytes. Drives less than 100GB will have a leading zero (80GB is denoted as 080, etc)
b = buffer size and interface
- J = 2MB PATA with ball-bearing motor
- L = 2MB PATA with fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) motor
- P = 8MB PATA
- R = 16MB PATA
- M = 8MB SATA
- S = 16MB SATA
- F = 16MB SATA 3gbps
All Maxtor SKUs have a zero at the end. It may have a value, but I'm not aware of one.

Example: A Maxtor drive with a model number of 6Y200P0 is a 200GB 7200RPM PATA drive with an 8MB buffer from the DiamondMax Plus 9 family.

now my generic answer: for all HDD. A+ training....(instructor)
1: i make sure it has +5v and 12vdc power, if not all is hopeless.
2: IF PATA/SATA , i listen to the drive case with my ear.
whirrrrrrrrrrrrrr, no whirrrrrrr ,? its DOA.
if it spins its good. if not its 100% DEAD, (RIP)
3: do the gyro test, (if it fights you, as you change it's direction, then it is spinning) Drive in HAND. (whole deal)
4: does BIOS see it? (MOBO BIOS) hot key hit. RTM on MOBO.
yes, good.
no , DEAD. try another power cord to drive or data cable.
try different data ports. on MOBO.
5: try it on 1 PC, with step 4 and 5
6: if BIOS sees it ,so should WINDOWS. (may)
in the device manager.
and in disk manager. (off computer management CPL)
both. set the drive latter in the latter or it will be hidden.

keep in mind BIOS never tests a drive. it only asks it for
its NAME (PNP) PNP just identiifes the maker and type drive. and its spec. and 1 more tests. it shows the drive is NOT BUSY.
these facts ,help all techs, make good trouble shooting.

The new HDD uses a SATA data interface as well as a SATA power interface. You will need a SATA cable as well as a power supply that supports the SATA power connectors. Since this is an older machine you will probably need to buy a SATA cable and a Molex to SATA power connector. This should cover any cabling issues that you are having.

Maxtor one touch usb hard drive


I would remove the hard drive from the case and slave it to my primary drive inside the tower. If it is out of warranty then it is likely old and about to die. Maxtors do not exactly have a reputation for longevity. Your best bet would be to image it and restore the image on a new drive.
