Maxtor one touch 4 mini makes chirping sounds while trying to link up with the computer , does this for aprox a minute then stops , the conmputer dosnt see the drive.


Usualy this thing happens with my WD Elements drive when the cable is not connected properly or some dust went on the connector, try using a paintbrush and get rid of the dust, sometimes the usb cable's end is corrodated and that's why id doesn't work properly anymore, sometimes it connects and a bit later suddenly it dissapears, this case try another cable. And also a good idea to try out the drive on a different USB port.
If none of these works, try it on a different computer and see what happens there, if it's not working over there with any of these tricks than it's time to bring it back to the shop and use your warranty to get a new one.

My computer is running very slow. So I ran test of my Maxtor 6Y160M0 hard drive using the computer's "PC-Doctor" software. The 'linear' test failed, giving me an error code the instructions...


the drive is going bad
Try to format the Maxtor.
NOTE: obviously backup all important data to a removable drive or CD.
You will have to reinstall windows. so before doing this, make sure that you have the cd and Product key (usually on CD case).

Cant partition, format maxtor drive


Connect drive to be formatted as slave.
to check if your windows sees the drive and is it active go to your desktop and right click on my computer -> manage -> Disk management.
You should see something like the picture below:
Your first disk will be Disk0 and 2nd disk will be Disk1 If you cant see Disk1 then the drive is faulty OR not connected properly make sure the drive is working with cables attached.
Listen if the drive spins.
If it doesnt then something is wrong.
If you can see the drive there then you might not have made any partitions onto it. You can make new paritions to the disk right there, right click on your disk1(your 2nd hdd) and create a new partition.
