1 Answer

Hard drive i have a hard drive caddy, which is usb.2 inside the caddy i have a maxtor diamond 10 model 6L300RO. i made a silly mistake of putting my laptop adapter in (20v) into the caddy (12v) causing the hard drive to blow, leaving that burning electric smell. The caddy still works, i've tried other Hard drives and they all work. Can my maxtor HDD be fixed? Thanks ILLCAT I have the excact same drive and did simular - connected a wrong procer supply the the caddy. I have taken a good look at the drive's circuit board and can't seem to locate the blown diode - which one was in in your case? /S?ren

If you can find another working 6L300RO, you can try swapping the logic board from the working drive onto the dead one. Try this if all you want is to recover the data from the dead drive.

Our MAXTOR Onetouch 4 mini is not recognized by computer. Can your software recover the data?


could be several issues to cause this fault, make sure your usb port is usb 2.0, replace the usb cable, take the unit apart and look for loose conections, try the drive in another caddy, or try another drive in the maxtor caddy. You will probably be able to remove the drive from the caddy and connect it into your computer if you have a tower and the correct connections.

No experience with this model but if you open the enclosure there is a regular hard drive inside. You may be able to fit it inside a pc, or use a hard drive caddy to get at your stuff

Yes, If your partition isn't being recognized than windows has no way of reading the information. thats why windows create partitions to determine the amount of space and data being used. it anything try to access it in my computer and see if you can. if you can its possible to get you info, i recommend ananother external to transfer the data to or if its not that much info put it on a flash drive

Hard Disk upgrade


Figured this out...
1)  Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2)  Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3)  Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4)  Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5)  Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1)  Flip the caddy over 2)  Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3)  Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4)  Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

Maxtor hard drive needs a chip replacing


Unless you can find the matching chip and are good at soldering these small parts, it can be replaced.

Typically, I would suggest looking for busted harddisks (of the same model) and if their board was still good, just do a direct swap. I did this for a Fireball model HDisk.

Or if their board is busted, you can get the chip from them and, like I said earlier regarding soldering, solder it onto your Hard disks. This is considering that the only part busted was this chip.

Hard drive


It is possible, maybe. I've done similar and only blew a surface mounted diode on the drive's circuit board. I located a blown drive and took that diode from it, soldered it to the one I blew and it worked.

So yes, if you can do similar to what I've described above.
I have to tell you though, that's a longshot.
