    Hi

    I have the same problem I can't find the Harddrive on my computer and the light is blinking fast all the time. It doesn't even turn on and makes no noise at all

    I have tried using the hard drive on two computers now... I will try the hot fix hopefully this will work. I moved a few weeks ago and haven't bothered trying to reconnect the external drive... I wonder if I damaged it in the move

I had a similar problem with my pc( OS=XP SP2) with the same external drive model. I was able to solve it by downloading and installing WindowsXP-KB908673-x86-ENU Hotfix Package from Microsoft Corporation. I hope it works for you.

Are you accessing the drive. When you accessing/using the drive, the light will blink.

What does blinking green light on Maxtor 3200 mean?


Typically, if your seeing that green light, it means you don't have enough power from your power supply. You may need to disconnect some of the other components for the drive to boot up. Ultimately, if you want to continue using the new drive, you'll need to replace out the power supply with a larger one.

Good Luck

Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management and see if the drive is listed there.

If it is, you need to format the drive and then it will be recognized by windows.

My Maxtor 3200 has a gren light that is now blinking and the computer cannot start the drive. Code 10. What does this mean?


I had this problem. I learned that the power supply was defective. You can purchase a 12V 2amp power supply. This solved my problem. My green light was coming on but my computer didn't recognize the drive and I got the same Code 10 cannot start drive. I purchased a 12V 3amp power supply. It doesn't hurt to have more amps but you need at least 2amps.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

Even though my Maxtor external hd is plugged in, the icon shows that it is disabled, any clues?


Is there an enable option when you right click the icon? If you're using Windows, go to Device manager and check if you can enable it from there.

I've had two of these Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 drives and both have failed. On the first one, one of the Best Buy Geek Squad guys told me the card (circuit board) was bad. I bought the exact model, swapped cards and the old drive worked fine... for a while. Now it has died. So I am online looking for another one, so I can swap cards again to rescue my data & photos.

External harddrive problems


The 3200 will work just fine on ME. The problem is that the drive comes from the factory formatted NTFS which Win9x can't recognize. You'll need to use an XP machine with a 3rd party utility (I use SwissKnife) installed to repartition and reformat the drive as FAT32. (the native XP utility will not allow a partition larger than 32GB) . Incidentally, the 3200 will also work on Win98, Google for 3200_usb_driver.exe and install it before connecting the reformatted 3200.

You need to open the enclosure and either put the drive in another enclosure or connect it directly to your computer.

Or you can pay to send it to data recovery people and they will get all the data off.

you have probably suffered a FS crash. You have no choice but the format the drive. (Hope you have a backup) If you dont you will have to run a recover utility like Recover my Files.

Maxtor 3200 power supply problem


I plugged a HP laptop charger into the drive and all it did was flash, bought a new housing and no luck. Data recovery sites said that it sounded like hardware trouble and the recovery minimum is $800. I did some more searching and found a site called PCB Solutions that sells the circuit board. You have to provide all of the specs. for the drive. The cost was $39 and I received it in 4 days. I replaced the board and the drive worked and I recovered all of my data. The URL is:
