Maxtor hard drive. macbook pro does not show hard drive icon on desktop . Just started this problem today. didn't drop it or anything. It lights up when it comes on, makes all the usual sounds.


Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Maxtor 3000LE makes noise and will not show up on my computer


You will need a data recovery specialist. Hard drives making noise need to be taken apart and put into a special machine to pull what data is not damaged. The more you leave the drive on or play with it the more data is destroyed.

Beeping, not showing on computer


Its beeping because its damaged! sad to say but the beeping is an error code! the other downside is hard drives are hard to repair so you may need to buy a new one.

Maxtor 3200 - ASAP


It's ruined, and even more so now you opened it.

If there is important data on it then a data retreval service could try to recover the data for you by removing the platter (in a clean room) and placing it an special reader but at a price!
