Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Have both a Sony and a Compaq nb - XPHE and PRO - both of which have dead internal drives.
Have tried to set each BIOS so as to boot from a usb drive (DVD external with OEM system DVD installed and ready). Neither seem to recognize anything via USB... but the do miss their own internal device - and DEVICE Manager to continually attempt to re-install these dead devices after being uninstalled and deleted.
The cost of replacing the Sony drive - very proprietary - is more than a brand new notebook (low end: MSOffice, Internet, photos, and the like).
The Compaq drive is readily available (TEAC) but, although it is much cheaper, it is still a very sizable chunk of change - over $300.
Got any suggestions?
I do like that you post the answers to queries on your site.
I've had you bookmarked for some time now and have found your threads quite useful.
I beleive you can just buy a maxtor harddrive made for laptops and install that...i don't think it's limited to ONLY that specific harddrive.
