Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have 6 Maxtor drives, from 1 30 gig, i 40 gig, 120 gig, and 3 80 gigs. Recently I have had failures on 3 of these drives. One minute they are fully functional and the next day they won;t boot and the error message I receive is "There is no Maxtor drive in your system.: I have tried running the drive to 0, using you utility Max Blast #3. but to no avail. Do you have any suggestions? Or do I now have 3 cut door stops? Right up front I feel they are most likely out of warranty, but a response would be nice as I will probably continue to purchase Maxtor products. Thank you, William Porter

The hard drives will have a date stamped on them if they are within their three year warranty period you should contact the hd manufacturer and see if they will refurbish it for you .

First I will want you to know that support for win98 has long reached end of life. I don't think that win98 support mass storage unit of that capacity. I will suggest you opgrade your os to winXP

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave


Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.

Memory loss


It seems to me that when the drive was partitioned, the whole thing was not partitioned. If using Windows XP you can go under the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management and then Disk Management. You should be able to see the drive and if any unpartitioned space is available.

Bios won't reconise 160 gig maxtor harddrive


You could try a BIOS update to increase the size of the Drive the BIOS is able to see.

The second last one indicates that drive sizes are supported over 65GB. It may still not be able to see the 160GB HDD, but this is your only option with this Board. You could always upgrade the Motherboard to support larger drives.

Good Luck.

What type of Computer are you installing this 80g drive on? How old is it? I need to know some specifics, because in older machines the BIOS are not setup to recognize large capacity HD, in addition you may have recieved a bad Drive. Please advise! I may have an answer for you!
