What OS are you using? Try using the disk that came with it or download the drivers from Maxtor.

Maxtor 3200 driver


That drive should be supported by most if not all operating systems without a driver.. (windows has one built in).. I did find some info saying that windows 7 has a problem with early drives. Presumably 8 and 10 would also have problems. You may find more info here:

How do I find the manufacture date on my Maxtor D540X-4K?


In general, hard drives are guaranteed by the manufacturer for one year. 3 years on premium drives. I don't consider older Maxtor drives premium! (probably personal bias).
I would think any 80GB IDE drive would work

Maxtor basics personal storage 3200 shows up as a usb mass storage device with no drive designation letter. used to work but not after problem with win xp pro & reloading oper. syst.


press the "Start" and "R" keys at the same time.
type "compmgmt.msc" in the box and select OK.

On the left pane, select "Disk Management"

Click add and select the "assign the following...".
on the drop down menu, select any letter you like EXCEPT A or B.
click OK.
Your drive should now show up in My Computer. All of your Data should still be there also.
