Maxtor Shared Storage 200GB ethernet not recognized by computer

I have a Maxtor Shared Storage 200GB ethernet drive and it seems to be 'stuck.' The yellow/orange light is on - will not switch over to green and my iMac no longer recognizes it. All my data is on there (I've been using this drive for years), is there a way to troubleshoot? This all started today when I went to access some files and the drive was present, but when I clicked on folders to access my files it was like there was nothing on the drive. So, I did what I usually do and ejected it, turned it off, unplugged it let it sit for a few minutes then restarted my computer (just in case) and turned it on. However, now it will not turn completely on (that is the yellow light will not change to green no matter what) and the computer no longer recognizes the drive in my network. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

SOURCE: Orange Light

have you tried to scan disk the drive and to fix problems with folder signature and have you had the virus scanner on this drive if not get it done you may have a virus on drive once you have scanned drive the only solution is to move all files off that you can and after you have scanned drive if it lets you in to that folder then move all that you can off to another drive then write down all files you can't move off that drive then format drive then move files back then find files that you had to destroy again and place these back on. I Have to do this all the time

Can you log into the Storage Router? The question is, where can you see the printer? If you can see it on the Router but not on the notebook, the problem is with the Router... if the Router sees it fine, you may have a presentation problem. Let us know.

SOURCE: Maxtor 3200 power indicator lights but computer won't recognize

I had the same issue. My PC would not recognize the external Maxtor 3200 hard drive, but the light was on, although feintly. Here is what I did. I went out and bought another Western Digital 500 GB USB hard drive, knowing that it probably had the same power supply. Got home and plugged the power supply into the Maxtor 3200 and immediately my Windows XP immediately recognized it and the drive was perfect. I checked with Radio Shack before coming home and they have the power supply needed there, with multiple choices on the size of the power input. The problem was the power supply cord. Now I have the Maxtor with all my media files on it and another that I will transfer files to as a backup

if you dont see it then it doesn't detect the hard drive. please check your hard drive connections and try again.

Tip

Utilizing all 200Gb of my Maxtor 200GB HD


Hi,

My name is Robert Bostick Sr.

I installed the above listed (200GB) Maxtor hard drive without any problems. However, this is where I discovered that all HD's will only recognize approximatly. 135GB.and that an Adapter PCI PC board would have to be installed to be able to recognize all 200GB. The remainder is not lost, but is installed like a second hard drive, but can only be used as a over flow space or for my music or photos. So, its not entirely bad. However, I want all 200. I have a new WD 80GB I could use for either my music or photos.

I read somewhere that I need a PCI Adapter for the computer to recognize all of the 200GBs. This is what I purchased on line. I purchased a "Rosewill" ATA-133 2-port Adapter with RAID.Part Number RC-200. Will this adapter solve my problem. Looking through all of your people questions Ion your Web Site I''m surprised I did not see a question like this. I guess I'm the only stupid old man out there.

If possible could someone give me a hand with this inherent situation. Also, will the Adapter PCI board I purchased work for this HD,

thanks so much for your time,

Best Regards,

Robert W. Bostick Sr.

Maxtor 3100 200GB hard drive clicks rythmically but not recognized by computer and cannot be accessed. About 3 -4 years old


Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Stored static ip address in nas server and cant


I have a similar problem. There is a reset pinhole switch just beneath where the Ethernet port is that if you push it is supposed to reset the drives name and switch it to DHCP. You can see this in the manual. Unfortunately, this hasn't worked for me and I'm working through another solution to see if I can find the IP it is attached to.

Unable to see Shared Storage Drive II on EasyManage via Wireless


Just got a Maxtor Share II drive and absolutely love it. Setting it up was a pain especially when the drive didn't remember the Administrators password.
Here's what I think the problem may be

1-Your router is not assigning an IP address to the drive
2-Make sure your router is configured to DHCP IP configuration not Static.
3-Before trying to use the drive make sure to install the Software/Drivers first.
Other suggestions

This may or may not apply to you. I got my Maxtor drive on 4-07-08 and from previous experiences with other computer products, ie, windows software, printer drivers, etc. The manufacturer in order to rush things out the cd software that comes with the product is not the final version and most likely the software already has an update on the manufacturer’s web site so it’s always good to check before committing to what you get on the CD. So sure enough the BIOS for my Maxtor Share II 500Gig hard drive was already old. I downloaded the new version upgraded the BIOS and my drive is working great. I hope this suggestions help. Enjoy your drive. Alfredo.

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor


If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.
