Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 problems

I recently reformatted my drive and now it will not show up on "my computer".
I simply right clicked and hit format. The computer recognizes that I plug it in but it will not show up. It even lets me try to boot from it in bios. I tried to plug it into different computers but the same thing happens. Does any one know what i could do?

Change the driver letter. Duplication of drive letter will only show 1 of the drive.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 stopped being recognised, clicking sound coming from box


The clicking sound from a hard drive is known as "The click of death". This drive is faulty and if you need data off this hard drive then there are companies that can recover data off a faulty hard drive BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My window wista cannot recognize the external hard drive maxtor 3200


If it is a brand new hard drive that you got what you will likely need to do is format the hard drive first. When you plug it in what you need to do is go to start - and then right click on "computer" and select "manage". This will open a new screen that has options. Click on "Disk management" on the right of that screen. You should see your new hard drive on this list. NOTE: Make sure you select your maxtor hard drive, not your computer hard drive. Right click on the drive and hit "format" and then follow the prompts or accept the defaults. Once this finishes you should be able to access your hard drive. If you have any other questions feel free to post a comment to this answer. Good luck!

Recently purchased a Mac. Unable to transfer data or videos. Is Maxtor 3200 compatible with Mac?


Macs can read NTFS format used by PC's, but not write to it.

You will have to take all your stuff off the drive, reformat it on the mac, and then you will be able to read/write to it. But PC's won't be able to read it anymore, unless they install some special drivers

Maxtor 3200 personal storage will not load on my computer or any computer tried 2 other laptops - it was working but had to turn off desktop computer due to storm & then when computer was turned back...


Did you unplug the power supply for the computer and external drive seperately or simply turn off the computer? If the lights do not com on as expected for the Maxtor drive then the power supply for the drive may have been damaged. If the do it may just be an untimely failure in the drive. Did you shutdown the computer via windows or just "pull the plug" when it started storming? Fill me in on these details and I will help you narrow down the source of the problem. Chris

Check the manufacturers website, as all drives no matter what should come with drivers of some sort. this is the most likely cause for what is wrong.
