This could idicate a low power supply for the device. some computer do have front usb ports, the truth about this front port is that they lack the power to supply some of this devices (being 200GB). If you are connecting it to the front usb then try using the main one behind the pc.
also note that usb polling which acts by reducing power consumed by the device may also be a cause(that is if you are using a modified version of windows other than that from microsoft since the modifier can alter that as well). Also try using it on a friends pc to see the outcome.
do let me know of the out come.
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.

I do I access previous saved files from my external Maxtor hard drive?


When you hook up a USB drive, it appears as a removable drive in "My Computer", clicking on that drive will open it up to you to see the files. clicking on specific files will allow you to see them if they are associated with a specific program, and most of them will be.

My desk top crashed and I have all my files backed up on a Maxtor 3200. How do I down load my backup files from my Maxtor 3200 to my new lap top. I can't find any paper work for it.


Hi,

Just plug into your laptop and find the drive for it, then enter into the files that you want to put on your laptop.
Copy and paste these files into your laptop hard drive, don't cut and paste just copy and paste them.

That way you will always have them incase your laptop should go down.

Hope this helped.

Thanks

Maxtor 3200 was working fine. Suddenly my


Try connecting it to another computer.
If it is not detected, then either the disk-drive "inside" the unit is dead, or the "adapter" (USB-to-Disk-Drive) inside the unit is dead.

If the latter, disassemble the case, remove the disk-drive, and attach it as an "internal" hard-drive to your computer.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 problem!!!


First, try another USB Cable. If that does not work properly then I would suspect the box or the drive has failed. If you just bought it, return it to the store and complain. They may replace it. As for your data?

Now if you want to become techie you can remove the hard drive from the box and attach it to you computer either copy the files back if you do not have them on your computer or format the drive if you have your files. Then put the drive back in the box and try to get a refund or buy a different external. I like a metal box with an AC cord plug. Best of luck.

If you did in fact change the partioning structure then the only recourse is to send the drive to a data recovery center. If the drive is running they should be able to recover the data.

The USB drive is not the C: drive. Open the windows file manager and you should be able to find it. Right click the Start button and open Explorer.
