    Recently got a new computer with Windows Vista. It does not recognize my Maxtor 3200 that worked well with my Windows XP. What can I do touse it with the new program. I no longer have the old computer.

Plugged in my Maxtor 3200. The computer recognizes it, but will not allow me to store any info on it... says it "cannot be modified." ??????


Check this on another computer to see if the same thing happens. if it does, look into the user manual to see if there are any physical settings you need to change on the drive itself.

Maxtor Basics 320 GB external harddrive cant be recognized


There's a good chance the shop you bought the drive from didn't have SP3 installed. For some reason, SP3 has an issue with USB peripheral devices. Windows has created a patch to rectify the problem. Click on the link below and install the "Fixit" patch to enable your PC to recognize your HD. Best of luck.
