Fitted a maxtor diamond max 120gb hard drive as slave ,t auto detects on the bios menu on start up ,but does not appear in my computer as a drive anyone know why please


If it is a "brand-new" drive, it needs to be "one-time" prepared for usage:

Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Manage
Expand the Storage branch
Click Disk Management
Click Disk Management (local)
Click on the "unformatted" drive to create a partition, and to assign a drive-letter.

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.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

Jumper off will set the drive to slave. If you can connect both drives to the same ribbon cable with the master on the end & the slave to the second connector. Look at your bios as win is booting up to see if shows the drive as slave, you will not be able to copy windows as a operating system off of the drive, but should be able to copy files.

Good luck on your endevors.

With pc turned off plug the USB drive into new PC and boot it up. Now on new pc it should auto detect and install the USB drive. Now goto Computer and you will see your USB drive there. Open that up now its as easy as copying anything you like and pasting to whever you want to keep it on new pc

you need to detect your harddisk in bios setup.
For that when you power up the computer press "del" key to enter in bios.
Then check your harddisk is detected in bios.
If not cxheck power cable and ide or sata cable connected to harddisk.
Reconect both connection to harddisk then check.

Browse to the location on the new computer where you want to save the old data.
Right click and choose New Folder.
Name the folder Files from Old PC
Press enter twice and the new folder will open.
Plug the Maxtor USB into the new computer and turn on the power.
The drive will install and be given a drive letter in my computer.
Browse to the drive in My Computer and double click the Maxtor drive.
Browse to the folder where you saved the old data and open it.
Now do the keyboard command CTRL + A (select all) this will select all the files.
Click one of the selected files & drag them all to the new folder you have open and let go.
All of the files from the Maxtor will copy to your new computer.
