Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive

Maxtor External HD - The device cannot start. (Code 10)

Maxtor 3200 X HD

I've had it over a year and now it won't show in my drives. The PC recognizes it, but says there was an error installing the device. I have tried power cycling the device and rebooting the PC many times. I've gone to the device manager and uninstalled and reinstalled the device. Have tried updating drivers. The exact error it keeps coming up with when going to device manager is "The device cannot start. (Code 10)".

I feel nauseous - there is a lot of stuff on there.

I had the same problem. After trying everything suggested on multiple sites, I realized that I had connected the power supply for another device to my Maxtor external drive. When I found the right pwer supply and connected it, the problem resolved.

You have a bad power supply. I've had two of these fail for the same reason. Please view my post on the Seagate Knowledge Base website.

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.

Then, connect the external USB device.

Go to the MAXTOR web site and download their free diagnostic utility. Then, remove the hard drive from the external case and connect it to a spare connector internally inside your desktop. Run the diagnostic utility and it will tell you if the drive is still OK (it probably is). If so, you will only need to replace the interface card in your external drive.
