Maxtor manufacturer says that this drive is not ready for windows 7 and no driver had been issued. you will have to connect it to another computer to recover the data, or to use another computer in your network to access it and share the resource with your pc with windows 7

To solve the above problem i.e make the Maxtor device work with Windows 7, please follow the instructions below. It worked for me without no problems ;)

1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate down the hierarchy to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and look for one or two folders with the name usbstor.inf_xxxxxxxx. Open the folder with the latest (newest) date.
2. Open another instance of Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\inf.
3. Place the windows side by side.
4. Go to the first window (1 above) and copy both the usbstor.inf and usbstor.PNF files to the second window's folder (C:\Windows\inf).

Maxtor 3200 driver


That drive should be supported by most if not all operating systems without a driver.. (windows has one built in).. I did find some info saying that windows 7 has a problem with early drives. Presumably 8 and 10 would also have problems. You may find more info here:

Green light is on but usb is not recognised code 43


Hello.

You didn't indicate what version of Windows you have, but if you have Windows 7 64 bit, Maxtor has not released a driver for Win7 64 bit which causes the error you are getting.

So, if you have Windows 7 64 bit, you will not be able to use this Maxtor drive.

Hope this helps.

My desk top crashed and I have all my files backed up on a Maxtor 3200. How do I down load my backup files from my Maxtor 3200 to my new lap top. I can't find any paper work for it.


Hi,

Just plug into your laptop and find the drive for it, then enter into the files that you want to put on your laptop.
Copy and paste these files into your laptop hard drive, don't cut and paste just copy and paste them.

That way you will always have them incase your laptop should go down.

Hope this helped.

Thanks

I backed up my old Dell laptop last year. I bought a new Dell laptop. I want to access the backup on my Maxtor and cannot do it. I want to load it onto my new laptop. How do I do this? I want to back up...


Very Simple. Just connect the Maxtor External Hard drive to your new laptop. Open Windows Explorer and you will see the Maxtor appearing as a Drive. Access the files from the explorer.
My advice is that create a new folder on the maxtor and then do a backup of your new laptop on to this new folder.
DO the same for your office PC.

Maxtor 3200 usb hard drive with windows vista home premium


Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.
