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

Does not show up in my computer but does in bios


Can you boot the computer from a boot floppy?
If so, try and partition and format the drive with fdisk and format.

Adding a hard drive to a PC


You need to set the little jumpers at the rear of the hard drive and the cd rom drive. Set the hard drive as Master and the cd rom as Slave. Both devices should then be recognized.

I shorted my 40GB!!


Hi theres a couple of ways i can think of, 1st, buy a replacement board but needs to be the same model and just replace it. you might get a cheap one from ebay. 2nd, if you phone maxtor and tell them u have a faulty hard drive, with important files they ask you to send it to them and they give you a price to get the information off, i cant remember how much it was the last time but its possible. all the best, and gl retrieving the info..
