Please, i have two hard drives, the first one is maxtor 80 gb (which i want to make master),the other one is sata sumsung 750 gb (which i want to make salve), how could i get that done ?


Hi!
That can be done from BIOS setings. First check that both the disks have been detected by the BIOS.
Usually, the hard disk at sata1 (1st sata connector on board is for master drive.
Secondly, look for the bootup option and choose maxtor as primary drive (to boot from it)

Hope this helps!. let me know about *********** board details also, if further any assistance is needed.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

No Data


Your operating system CD is a bootable disk. Just stick er in and the cd should start right up. If not, during bootup, go to set up and make your cd your first choice of boot.

Maxtor hard drive xbox 360


The maxtor hard drives will work with an Xbox360 but in only one case, your xbox hard drive is linked to work only with your console and if you swapped hard drives the xbox wouldn't read it so to answer this you need to reset your Xbox 360 copy protection serial number i.e. Flashing your Xbox or Chipping it, once your Xbox is Flashed or Chipped you can use a maxtor hard drive through the SATA cable port in your Xbox

Hard drives


If you set it to CS and then plug it into the second connector it should be on the slave. The end one is always master. Sometimes you just have to do a trial and error deal. Go into your bios and set your hard drive dectection to auto and on your bootup screen it should show the drives. Even in the bios once it is connected right the bios will tell you where it is recognized at. If all else fails, go to www.maxtor.com and look for your model hard drive and see what the settings are there.

Transfering data from Maxtor to a new computer


It's a USB Hard drive, so you should plug the USB port into one computer, put your information on it, then plug the USB port into the other computer. Browse the Hard Drive for your data. It's like a larger flash drive.
