SOURCE: Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 Hard Drive Problem:

Someone else figured this out, but I've seen a lot of people with the same problem. Hopefully this will help you with yours. This is for WinXP and Windows Vista. It worked great for me.

*** THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY ***

1 - Disconnect the HD from USB and power supply.
2 - There are 2 screws at the back. Unscrew and open the box. (The plastic is kinda hard to open be careful)
3 - Now you have a metal box in your hands. Unscrew and open it.
4 - Now you will see a HD and a controller board. There are 3 screws that holds the controller board. Take them out.
5 - Now slide out the hard drive and controller board out gently.
6 - Unplug the controller board (power socket and IDE socket)from the Hard disk.
7 - Look at the back you will see jumper settings. (Mine was set on Cable Select.)
8 - Take the jumper out and plug it to Master ON position. now put it all back together.

SOURCE: maxtor 3200 usb personal storage

Like many others, I had problems with the drive and tried some obvious solutions like swapping the old USB cable with a new one, trying different computers with XP, Vista, etc. and nothing worked. One solution I found was to open the HD case and swap the drive into a spare bay on your PC tower. I didn't want to go there since the case is very hard to open and I didn't want the hassle. So, the solution I tried was to replace the power supply. I saw this solution a few times in some forums so I figured to give it a try. I Googled the exact specs and found a comparable power supply at 12V Adapters (Aurora CO). It is not a Maxtor supply but I figured as long as the output was correct it may work. Just got the adapter today, plugged in the HD, and YES, IT POWERS UP and the XP at my work recognizes the drive! Now I have all my files available and accessible. Good luck to all, I hope this works for you. By the way, one lesson learned: BACK UP BACK UP BACK UP! Drives are so cheap now there is no reason not to (except for being lazy)!

SOURCE: power cord for maxtor 3200 external drive

The following site guarantees compatible replacement.
http://www.lcdpayless.com/productpage.php?productId=2511

I've been searching for a replacement as well. I found the specs on the original cord at the following site.
http://www.libertye-online.com/servlet/the-1642/new-APD-I.T.E.-POWER/Detail

12V, 2A, positive inner post, 2.5 inner diameter (ID) and 5.5 outer diameter (OD).

I don't think I would buy the exact replacement ADP brand fom the site above. Many have complained about it failing at the 2-yr point. I am considering the following replacement from the same website.
http://www.libertye-online.com/servlet/the-1218/new-Challenger-I.T.E.-POWER/Detail

NOTE: the input AC voltage range is different on this one, but it should still work in the USA.

There are other options on ebay.

Let us know if anyone has specific success with any of these or others.

Green light is on but usb is not recognised code 43


Hello.

You didn't indicate what version of Windows you have, but if you have Windows 7 64 bit, Maxtor has not released a driver for Win7 64 bit which causes the error you are getting.

So, if you have Windows 7 64 bit, you will not be able to use this Maxtor drive.

Hope this helps.

How can i install the maxtor personal storage 3200? are there any drivers that i need to install?


You do not need any driver. This device is plug and play in Windowsmag-glass_10x10.gif XP. If it doesn't work then you probably have a USB problem. Have you checked in Device Manager to insure the usb port is working properly and is compatible with the drive, eg: usb 2.0 or usb 1.1?

for any further information refer to this link :

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 ... Problem


Check the manufacturers website, as all drives no matter what should come with drivers of some sort. this is the most likely cause for what is wrong.
