    I am trying to load Windows XP and the installation starts but when it get to the format part, it acts as if it is going to format then tells me that the drive is corrupt or cables loose, etc. I tried three new drives, nothing happens.



    The original problem was the drive as well.

Hi - could you please tell me what operating system you are using so I can give you the step by step instructions. You should repartition the drive just so you're you get as much room as possible on it and it will have to be reformatted and that's it. Let me know about your your operating system and I'll be happy to give you directions. Thanks.

if the drivers for the card reader were recently updated they might not be capatible with the card reader try rolling the drivers back to previous time and clean the reader with canned air if it does not work the problem is internal and might have to be replaced if it is not proprietary (attached to the motherboard)

Maxtor Internal EIDE hard drive dip switch settings.


I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.

It might be a motor going bad, as in a HDD or fan. Try to pinpoint where the noise originates. Is it coming from the speakers or somewhere else?

Hardware monitor error


Hi,

Sounds like loose connection on your monitor card, if installed seperately, otherwise the wrong drivers installed.

Boot up in safe mode and uninstall the monitor drivers. and try and boot again.

Let me know if need further help.

Maxtor One Touch External Hard Drive 100GB


I had the same problem. I looked up in Maxtor customer support and found the following:

When you start Retrospect Express HD it keeps hanging on Updating status.
http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=188051

Problem:
There is a bug in Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1 that could contribute to the Updating status… error you get with Retrospect Express HD.
Solution: To solve this problem upgrade to Retrospect HD 1.1.
Please see Answer ID 2647: Installing the EMC Retrospect Express HD 1.1 Upgradefor the download and installation instructions.
McAfee Personal Firewall Plus Edition or ZoneAlarm can also be attributed to this hang condition. Adding Retrospect HD as an exception in McAfee Personal Firewall Plus does not resolve the problem. Please see
Answer ID 2152for more information.

Sorry if the links don't wok but ou can find all of this on the maxtor site.

good luck!
