Firstly, Unplug the cable connecting to the external HDD. Then go to my computer, right click on it and select use your legs and hands to dismantle maxtor HDD. Look at the maxtor brand title on the HDD. Press the 'X' letter as hard as you can for at least 100 times. The external HDD will open up to form the shape of letter 'X' and there will be a button called start to initialize the harddisk. After finish using, unplug the drive and HOLD IT TIGHTLY. IF NOT, IT WILL

Simple you need to update your bios by downloading bios updates for you motherboard. Then it should recognise your HDD. The yellow triange just means your mboard does not have the necessary drivers to recognise the device. thanks

Please, i have two hard drives, the first one is maxtor 80 gb (which i want to make master),the other one is sata sumsung 750 gb (which i want to make salve), how could i get that done ?


Hi!
That can be done from BIOS setings. First check that both the disks have been detected by the BIOS.
Usually, the hard disk at sata1 (1st sata connector on board is for master drive.
Secondly, look for the bootup option and choose maxtor as primary drive (to boot from it)

Hope this helps!. let me know about *********** board details also, if further any assistance is needed.

Will not recognize sata drive need to know necessary connections


There are only two connectors on a SATA drive, namely POWER and DATA.
Check that both cables are securely connected.

Try the disk-drive in some other computer.

INFO:
Files are never really erased from a hard drive.
At various stages files are always recoverable.

RECOMENDATION:
To truly erase your hard drive take it out and completely destroy it down to many small parts.

Reformat the hard drive.

My slave hard disk is not showing in my computer


Is it formatted ? Does it have a drive letter associated to it? If not then either format it (right click on My computer -> click Manage -> click Disk Management. Now right click the drive if it is showing there and either create partitions and/or format it if it not already formatted.

If it's already formatted, and you just need to assign a drive letter, then in Disk Management, right click the drive and click Change Drive Letter and Paths and assign an unused drive letter, say Z.

Close Computer Management and open My Computer. The new drive should show up now.

HTH,

Maxtor III 600 gb will not mount


What Operating system are you using ?

I'll assume your using windows.

Try going to disk management
it may not have any partitions

you can get into the disk management by pressing start --> Control Panel ---> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Disk Management.

Once your in Disk Management you should see the 600gb

After you find it right click and either format / import foreign disk

(This applies to internal hard drive only)
If Hard drive is not listed you may have to set jumpers correctly or check bios to make sure hard drive is detected
