    Thanks Geno.

    I was in that site today but they were of no help. After one hour and a half of talking to their (seagate/maxtor) tech support... all he said was - they cant find it on their data base and it was an internal hard drive with an external casing and they dont support that type of external hard drive. This really sucks now! He wanted me to take the case apart and install internal drive directly to my pc as an internal drive...! Why in the world would I do that?

    There should be a driver for this somehwere!

You should be able to download the drivers from HERE . They only list product names like Maxtor One Touch 4 and such, so I couldn't point you to an exact link.

Hope that fixed ya..

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:

Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Have a Maxtor External Disk 3200, recently upgrade to Win 7 32 bit & have having problems ever since with the Maxtor. What can I do?

You can click the program and 'run as xp' - this will give you some advantage of not having to deal with 7 drivers. Meanwhile - you can go to Maxtor's website and download the windows7 drivers for your external drive. One last thought - the drive may have chosen this time to not want to work for you too. There is a long term warranty so maybe you might look into an RMA if all else fails.

Installing the external drive

In XP and Vista no need to install.
They will detect automatically.
To know, goto Windows explorer.
Find drive letter other than your local drive.
Usually called "removable disk".

My maxtor 750GB external drive is not recognized by my CPU anymore!

It's probably either WinXP and a hub fighting over drive IDs, special drivers you installed but haven't been upgrading, or the thing isn't powered up properly.  Go to.  Oh, and your CPU (Intel, ARM, AMD, whatever) never recognizes hard drives; it's up to the OS.  What OS?  That's how you present a problem properly, in the right category.

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor

If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.

do you have an operating system installed on your C drive? if you have windows xp installed it should detect the external drive after you connect it, you may need to install the driver also. Check maxtors site for the latest software
