Question about Maxtor QuickView (4r080l0-qv) 80 GB Hard Drive
You will need to go into the control panel, administrator, and then disk drive manager. once there you will need to initialize the new drive and then format the drive before the system will see it. Format using the NTFS file system only if you are using XP, After the format is completed reboot the system and your new slave drive should show up just fine and you will be able to log into it or use explorer to view it.

Go into Control Panel go into 'Administrative Tools', double click 'Computer Management' click on 'Disk Management'. Do you see the hard drive?? Right click on the drive and select 'Format'. If this didn't help, write back and we'll find another way.

"Any suggestions?" ... Yes. Here's a quick few:
If it's showing in your WinXP's "Device Manager", try reinitializing it.
1. Select the device (maxtor 3200 160gb), then right-click > "Uninstall" it.
2. Reboot (instead of rebooting, you may also simply do a menubar > "Actions" > "Scan for hardware changes". However, if you haven't already rebooted since problem was recognized, this is a good time to do it now. If left un-done, you'd be amazed how often that one action alone will work wonders).
If that brings no joy, see if the drive is reflected in your "Disk Management" console [Start > Run... > type "diskmgmt.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"].
If it's not there, your registry is probably configured to "hide" (not display) the specific drive letter assigned to this drive. You can both check and correct this by getting "TweakUI". Download it here http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/TweakUI.shtml. After it downloads, launch it, then ensure the subject drive letter is checked ON [TweakUI > left colunm "My Computers" > "Drives"].
Good luck, and post back with a status report and/or any further questions.

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the drive. Maxtor doesn't have any updates availble because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

I had the same problem. After trying everything suggested on multiple sites, I realized that I had connected the power supply for another device to my Maxtor external drive. When I found the right pwer supply and connected it, the problem resolved.
