If the HD is not showing up in "My Computer" (for XP) or "Computer" (for Vista), you need to try the following:
1. Try connecting the HD into another USB ports.
2. Try another USB cable. The cable could be defective.
3. Try connecting the HD into another computer.
4. Check the Disk Management. To check the Disk Management, please follow the steps below:
- Right click 'My Computer' or 'Computer' icon > Manage
- Select Disk Management and you will see drive letters.
- Write down the drive letters and then connect the Maxtor 160GB HD.
- If there's a new drive letter appear, then the HD is still detected by the computer. And reformatting the HD should resolve the problem.
NOTE: Once you reformat the HD, all files will be erased. Once you hear a clicking sound on the HD while it's ON, I'm sorry to tell you but the HD is already defective. Clicking sound on the HD is also called the 'Click of Death'.
If you could still detect the HD under the Disk Management, only reformatting it could save the HD.
Have a great day!
