Dont think you need a driver unless you are installing it in a raid ...the purpose of sata was to elliminate hdd jumpers and configuration ... just go into the bios and make sure the sata channels are enabled

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 45 7200 RPM 30.7 GB HDD suddenly makes clicking sound when started and will not be recognized by Win XP OS. The drive had been working flawlessly. Any suggestions?


Clicking sounds is an indication that the platters have a bad device internally. Once that happens the hard drive is no good, run the serial# on Maxtors website to see if its still under warranty, gd lk

Windows xp shows hard drive as 30g. I have diamond max plus 9 120gb model 6y120PO s/n y25W76E bios shows maxtor 6y120PO capacity 33821mb


It is probably partitioned. Right click on "my computer" select "Manage" and then look at the disk manager. You will find that the rest of the drive is there, but un partitioned and un formatted.

Maxtor 120 gb harddrive cant read it on older home pc


You indicated that you have 2x achieved connectivity on the home pc. This is a good indication of a problem with the USB port. You may want to acquire a USB card for the motherboard. This alternative access to the computer could solve the problem. Cost for a replacement card can be as low as $20. Use a screwdriver to open the case, install the card and go.

Adding a hard drive to a PC


You need to set the little jumpers at the rear of the hard drive and the cd rom drive. Set the hard drive as Master and the cd rom as Slave. Both devices should then be recognized.

HDD not recognized in XP Installation


if you are using it as a slave hard drive, you should be able to right click my computer, manage, then in next window double click storage, then disk management, then look for your drive, you can then look to see if its recognised, if not it will tell you that its not configured, and you should be able to right click on it and format it.
