You connected it to a "USB 1.1" socket in your computer, which is only 1/40 of the speed of a "USB 2.0" socket (if your computer has any such USB sockets). If you don't have any USB 2.0 ports, buy a PCI add-in card to add some ports to your computer.

Maxtor Basic 500Gb hard drive - knocked and will not power up?


Hi,

They do not generally distribute spare parts for these cases. You can however purchase new complete enclosures without a drive for a small price and transfer your existing drive into the new enclosure. As the actual hard drive can generally survive several G's worth of drop force even when running, it's most likely the harddrive is ok. Once in the new enclosure test the drive out, if it works, you're done. If it doesn't the drive itself is the problem, reply here by adding a comment with your country and city and I will pass along a recommendation for a professional facility.

Damaged Maxtor Cable Socket


NO. Its also probably the drive a suffer physical damage. Imagine a cd player being dropped as it is reading/writing, except you can change the disk. You will most likely have to ( or have a trained technician ) extract the drive, place it into a new enclosure, and test the drives stability. Hope this helps.
