Hello!

Removing the hard drive shouldn't be a problem. Make sure that your computer is plugged in but the power is turned off. Rest your arms on the metal of the case to ensure you are grounded and do not fry any parts with static electricity.

Remove the drive by unplugging the molex (the part hooked in to your drive that is wired to the power supply) and the IDE cable or SATA drive cable.

If you need to plug IN a drive, that would be different and potentially more complicated but you only ask how to disconnect it. If you do need additional assistance, please let me know. If I misunderstood your question, let me know as well and I'll try to offer additional solutions.

Good luck!

When i plug it in to usb drive blue light flashes only once but it is not shown on my list of devices on my pc and i cant veiw photos on it


The power supply on the drive has failed. What you can do is take it out of the enclosure and put it in a new hard drive enclosure. I had the same exact problem one time. I took the drive out of the enclosure and intalled it in my computer tower.

My hardrive "simpledrive" model 96300-41001-156


The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

Welcome to fixya,

The main caused of the problem is the enclosure of your Maxtor ext drive you need to change ot replace it to a new one. Take your hadridsk out of the enclosure and buy new enclosure and then put your hardisk back on to the new enclosure.
