Lost manual


You didn't mention a name so I will shoot in the dark to try to help...if your computer doesn't recognize the hard drive that is because it is not formatted yet.
If it is an IDE hard drive make sure the jumpers on the end of the drive are set the way you want. If it is a single drive set to MA or CS if it is the second hard drive select SL if it is a Serial drive it will detect the position by itself. Make sure you power supply plug is snug. More information can be gleaned easily from the manufacturer's site, Seagate, Maxtor (is seagate) Western Digital..and the like.
hope something here hit target, please leave rating. thank you kindly

How do I find the manufacture date on my Maxtor D540X-4K?


In general, hard drives are guaranteed by the manufacturer for one year. 3 years on premium drives. I don't consider older Maxtor drives premium! (probably personal bias).
I would think any 80GB IDE drive would work

Bad hard drive back up and replace on evesham ebox


The only thing I can think of is you might hook up the drive as "slave" drive on a working computer and see if it will operate long enough to retrieve your data. But if the drive is dead you may have lost everything that was on it. There are services that do data recovery on dead hard drives but I'm sure it is expensive to have this done. This is why I always back up everything I do to a different device while I am working.

Why, most new computers will find the hard drive and set the settings. You can get on line to Maxtor and get the setting off the internet...

I have a maxtor 6L080M0 hard drive that has crashed The return code is 7 Is there any way to fix this problem.


If the following determines you have hard drive failure then you may have to purchase a new HD. Follow what is recommended from the manufacturer below. READ EVERYTHING.

According to Seagate the makers of Maxtor, you have a DiamondMax 10 (6L080M0). See below or click here

My internal hard drive may be defective, how can I test it?

Question

My internal hard disk drive may be defective, how can I test it?

How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?

It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.

Answer
For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:

If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.

If the BIOS does not recognize the drive or the drive does not spin please reference Answer ID: 48

The operating system will not recognize a drive that is not formatted and partitioned. If you need help with formatting:

  • Windows 9x and ME reference Answer ID: 3076
  • Windows 2000 Answer ID: 880
  • Windows XP Answer ID: 3361
  • Windows Vista Answer ID: 3844
  • Macintosh Answer ID: 492


    For Seagate SCSI drives:
    Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.

    For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
    Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.

    SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.

    If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.

    When i connected my Maxtor basics 160 for the first time 2 weeks ago i recall a prompt asking me to backup all files (or something similar)which i did. I recall another prompt saying this was successful....


    You probably backed them up to the same hard drive that they were on. If you plug in your maxtor hard drive to another machine and it shows it as being empty... this would be my best guess.

    Most drives come with backup software that automates the process(as best it can) so that you can one click backup your documents and files(not your operating system).

    I prefer to copy and paste my files and do my own backups, but backup software is an easy solution for the do-it-yourself.

    Maxtor harddrive jumper setting


    If you only have a single hard drive (or multiple hard drives for that matter), you should leave the jumper setting as "Cable Select" or CS.

    See if this PDF matches your hard drive:
