    Unfortunately the hard drive is toast, the only hope of retrieving data is take it to a well equipted computer service store in the hope of extracting the imformation, this will be hit and miss whether it can be successful.

    I need to know the power rating for a Maxtor 160GB external Hard Drive for use with a Yamaha PSRs-900 keyboard. Yamaha requires the rating to be not greater than 500-600mA

    The Maxtor STM901601EHD301-RK is part of the Maxtor Basics Portable family.

    It uses a 2.5 inch Internal harddrive inside. (2 and a half inches across the Width. Same size used for a laptop. Desktop's use 3.5)

    It connects with a USB Style A male plug, via the USB cable.
    It's has a 160GB storage capacity, has an 8MB Buffer, (Cache), and an External Data Transfer Rate of 60 MegaBytes per Second.

    Other than that, I find no more information from Seagate, (Seagate bought out Maxtor, and has the data base for Maxtor products)

    What I do know in reference to your question.
    I know that the USB 2.0 technology uses 5 Volts DC. The Positive pin on the USB plug will support up to 5 Volts.

    [Viewing a USB-A style plug, view it with the white plastic spacer at the bottom. Open part at top. The Positive pin is all the way to the right. The Negative pin all the way to the left. The Data + pin is on the left next to the Negative pin. The Data - pin is on the right, next to the Positive pin]

    The Maximum current draw is 500 mA for a USB 2.0 port.
    [ Current is rated in Amperes, or Amp's. You are looking at Millionths of an Amp.
    Milliamp, or abbreviated as mA]

    This would lead me to believe that the Maxtor Basics Portable external harddrives will not use more than 500 Milliamp's.

    However I do not feel comfortable, telling you that it is okay to use your Maxtor STM901601EHD301-RK, on your Yamaha PSR2-900 keyboard. Would hate to be mistaken, and have you burn out the finals of your keyboard.

    I do feel comfortable with the following suggestion.

    What about transferring as much data as you can from the Maxtor Basics Portable, to a USB thumb drive? They have large thumb drives now, and hold a lot of data.

    Most programs will fit on a large USB thumb drive.
    Or am I missing the point somewhere?

    5T020h2 jumper setup

    No jumper is used on the J50 pins, when using the Maxtor 5T020H2 IDE harddrive, as a Slave harddrive.

    In otherwords do not use a jumper on any of the jumper pins.

    This is a PDF file of the Harddrive Specifications of the 5T020H2, 5T010H1, 5T030H3, 5T040H4, and 5T060H6 Maxtor IDE harddrives,
    from Seagate. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

    The Jumper Settings are in Chapter 2, Page 5 (2-5)
    Looking at the page number for the PDF file it's on Page 15.

    Sometimes the hard drive will connect and sometimes it won't.

    There have been problems plaguing the LaCie external harddrives, for quite some time now.

    The issue directly relates to the interface, inside the external enclosure. I don't know if you are acquainted with harddrive designs, or the interface that they plug into. If you are, disregard the following.

    This is an average example of an IDE harddrive,
    Looking at this illustration, note where it points to -> IDE Connector. The illustration isn't very good, but those dots are metal pins.
    The connection inside your external harddrive,
    that connects to the harddrive itself, is called an Interface. This is a plug that has socket holes, to match those metal pins.

    Now we go a little deeper. There are two types of harddrives. One is an IDE harddrive, the other type is a SATA harddrive. Your LaCie
    will have a SATA harddrive inside.
    Instead of the 40 pins that an IDE harddrive has, the interface for a SATA harddrive has 7.
    (It has 15 pins for the power connection)

    Now my solution:
    Should you wish to save data that is on your LaCie external harddrive right now, I suggest you buy an external enclosure, (SATA), take out the hardrdive thats in your LaCie, and install it in the enclosure.

    Since, the dimensions of the, LaCie design by Porsche 160GB external harddrive are:
    Height -> 1.4 inches, (About 1-1/2 inches)
    Width -> 4.4 inches, (About 4-1/2 inches)
    Length -> 7.4 inches, (About 7-1/2 inches),
    I'm willing to bet the harddrive inside is a desktop harddrive size. (3.5 inches across in width)

    These are examples of 3.5 inch SATA external enclosures,|c:2778|&Sort=0&Recs=10
    (A $25 or $35 unit will work just fine)

    Data disappeared overnight

    I've seen a lot of flack about these puppies lately. It's usually due to the external enclosure, the harddrive is in, and not the harddrive itself.

    It is for this reason, that I suggest that you take the harddrive out of this enclosure, and install it into a decent, affordable, new external enclosure.
    External enclosures are relatively cheap!

    The harddrive inside the Maxtor One Touch II is a desktop size harddrive. It's a 3.5 inch one.
    (3 and a half inches across in width)
    It is a Sata harddrive.

    These are examples of external enclosures for a Sata 3.5 inch harddrive,|c:2778|&Sort=0&Recs=10
    (My recommendation would be the Vantec NexStar 3 NST-360 Su-BL)

    This external enclosure has instructions, is easy to install the harddrive, and uses a USB cable just like your old one.

    Maxtor 3200

    Seagate troubleshooting Error Code 10, states that drive has failed. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

    Before you resign yourself to everything is lost on this harddrive, how about trying one more thing?

    How about putting the harddrive inside in a new external enclosure, and see if it works? I suggest that perhaps the external enclosure it's in, is bad.
    The harddrive inside is a 3.5 inch harddrive. Same width as used by a desktop computer. It is a Sata harddrive.

    Here's an example of a 3.5 inch Sata, external enclosure,
    Just pop the external enclosure open that holds it now, take it out, and install it into an external enclosure like the example above. Plug in the USB cable.

    Don't know if this applies to your particular Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, but when I went to search for the type of harddrive it uses just now, I ran into thsi, and thought I would pass it along.

    We found out after the Geeksquad screwed up on a harddrive recovery that the Maxtor one touch is auto formated for the PC. And if you have an Apple you can see the data but it is all locked. In order to unlock you have to save a copy of the data elsewhere, wipe the drive clean, and reformat it.

    That might be your problem as well?
