If you think you are good enough I would say that you should go ahead and try, but don't be dissapointed if it doesn't work for some reason...

    I would try asking for Maxtor or a computer store to try to help you first, though.

External maxtor isn't recognized on XP


Since you have important files on this drive, do not waste a lot of time with troubleshooting. If your drive is about to go out, you can put it over the edge that way and kill it.

Just to be sure, I would plug the drive into 1 other computer just to make sure. If you get the same thing, the problem is definently with the Hard Drive.

If this is the situation, I would take off the outer case to reveal the regular hard drive inside. You can hook this hard drive up to your computer as a slave and copy the files off. If your computer will not read the drive as a slave, and you have double checked the jumper settings and cable position.....you can try a program like "Get Data Back" to try and recover data off the bad/corrupted hard drive.

My Maxtor External Hard Drive is not working


You need to check it with Norton Utilities. I hope you still have this hard drive (this posting is posted 5 years ago) and it is not dead yet, so you can copy all of the valuable files to your other data storage.
Here is the link to download the 30 day trial (free):

Hard drive dropped, now not working


The beeping/clicking sound usually means your hard drive isnt far from "death."
You should be backing up all your data and yes, you can find people who get info back from hard drives, but this is very expensive.

Reformating all the time.


Get a freeware data recovery software program (google for it). Be sure not to reformat the drive or copy any other files to it.

After you recover your files, run the maxtor diagnostics on it (do a full diag procedure).

I'm really sorry wolverine51, but you will just have to replace it. You might also think about doing backups in the future.
