I had a similar problem with my pc( OS=XP SP2) with the same external drive model. I was able to solve it by downloading and installing WindowsXP-KB908673-x86-ENU Hotfix Package from Microsoft Corporation. I hope it works for you.

SOURCE: maxtor 3200 160gb usb hard drive not in my computer

Hello kc9iid.

"Any suggestions?" ... Yes. Here's a quick few:

If it's showing in your WinXP's "Device Manager", try reinitializing it.

1. Select the device (maxtor 3200 160gb), then right-click > "Uninstall" it.
2. Reboot (instead of rebooting, you may also simply do a menubar > "Actions" > "Scan for hardware changes". However, if you haven't already rebooted since problem was recognized, this is a good time to do it now. If left un-done, you'd be amazed how often that one action alone will work wonders).

If that brings no joy, see if the drive is reflected in your "Disk Management" console [Start > Run... > type "diskmgmt.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"].

If it's not there, your registry is probably configured to "hide" (not display) the specific drive letter assigned to this drive. You can both check and correct this by getting "TweakUI". Download it here http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/TweakUI.shtml. After it downloads, launch it, then ensure the subject drive letter is checked ON [TweakUI > left colunm "My Computers" > "Drives"].

Good luck, and post back with a status report and/or any further questions.

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

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 :

Maxtor 3200 200 gig not recognized


When your drive is in RAW format, the best thing you can do is try to recover the files and then get the hard drive replaced. I would recommend trying the trial version of this program: http://www.recovermyfiles.com

If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll see if I can come up with another way to solve the problem

Maxtor Hard drive tries to work


I had this problem also. It was either dropped or something fell on it. You have to get it repaired or a new one. If you have VERY important information that cannot be replaced, consider a data recovery service from your local stores.

Good luck with your Drive.

You need to open the enclosure and either put the drive in another enclosure or connect it directly to your computer.

Or you can pay to send it to data recovery people and they will get all the data off.

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: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support... 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.
