My Maxtor HD D540X-4D, 60Gb, Ultra ATA100, S/No. D3H727DE, Model 4D060H3.Failed recently, when my PC failed,(Mobo controller failed.)I have about 15Gb of Photos on it which I dearly want to get back. It was running with Windows XP, (previously, W98SE, )Upgraded to XP. It was Partitioned,C;/D:/ E:.C; being Boot & main used, D; was Backup of Photos etc; E; had nothing on it. I sent HD to a "Rapid Data,Recovery" to recover my Data, they replaced HDA, parts, then tried to recover, but got to 2%,then failed. Hence no data, but cost me £245 for the effort.Is there any hope or way to get my photos back (not too expensive, as I'm retired & have limited funds for such projects.) Help me, ta.

Unless you are willing to shell out far more then you already have no. The only other method is that used by large companies that need to recover data from servers etc. And to say it's expensive is a massive understatement.
The only thing you will take away is the knowledge that a backup of anything should not be kept on the same drive.

Sorry for the bad news.

Maxtor D540X-4D 60GB 5400 RPM HDD is not detected on my computer management?i tried to use another PC but same problem occured. What should i do?


There is a jumper located near the power plug and on the label there should be a configuration table. Primary, slave or cable select. Double check to see the data ribon cable type the newer ones 7600 RPM I believe has a dense wire ribon texture for faster data transfer, I did not believe it when I first saw it eather.. I believe that may have to use the older standard ribon data cable. And check the config of that jumper

How do I find the manufacture date on my Maxtor D540X-4K?


In general, hard drives are guaranteed by the manufacturer for one year. 3 years on premium drives. I don't consider older Maxtor drives premium! (probably personal bias).
I would think any 80GB IDE drive would work
