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.

Trying to install as slave. check disc checks it then computer stops???


since you have been connecting another hard drive and plugging the leads in/out

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection

i would also suggest you buy another PSU power supply unit preferably a heavy duty one with plenty of wattage when you add more devices ram,hard drives,cd/dvd recorders it drains more power from the power supply unit placing more strain on your computers PSU

and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

Maxtor hard drive xbox 360


The maxtor hard drives will work with an Xbox360 but in only one case, your xbox hard drive is linked to work only with your console and if you swapped hard drives the xbox wouldn't read it so to answer this you need to reset your Xbox 360 copy protection serial number i.e. Flashing your Xbox or Chipping it, once your Xbox is Flashed or Chipped you can use a maxtor hard drive through the SATA cable port in your Xbox

Can i use this maxtoe diamond max 21 500 gb drive for a c drive i am removing a 80 gig that is defective


If you mean remove your old 80 gb drive and replacing with the Maxtor 500 gb drive you should be able to. The Maxtor 21 series is equiped with SATA. Just make sure that your computer can run SATA. If not, I believe that there are adapters out there.

It is possible to replace/transplant the circuit board. But I am not sure of the motor and the platters. I would suggest you not to play around with the platters. If you wish to replace the circuit board (I guess it is also called the logic card) get a hdd of the same make and size and replace it with this one.
