Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

1 Answer

Maxtor DiamondMax 21 80 giga

I have two desktop PCs with PIII inside (750 & 900 Mhz) and XP professional (RAM pc133), both fully functional and each other with a couple of small harddrives (15/20 giga). I bought a DiamondMax in order to substitute one of them that was damaged but I encountered several problems (almost the same in both computers).
After having disconnected the hard drives and replaced them with the new one, I realized that both PCs were not able to "see" it when putting the jumper in the right place as "master"; nor automatically, neither using the "hdd detection" in the BIOS... Curiously, after many attempts, I came over this problem adding another jumper in the far right position! But this was not the definitive solution because now the systems "see" the hard disk as he had a smaller size: exactly 33 giga (maybe because of some processor/motherboard limit or so on...).
Can you help me?
Thanks in anticipation.

If you gave me a model number I could help you better, but here is what I can give you from what info you gave me.

Here is a spec sheet for the 3.5" drives since you seem unsure if it's 2.5 or 3.5:

Here's a link to more information. Seagate now owns Maxtor:

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Windows Xp Setup Problem : "setup cannot access the disk". I have HDD: Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 80GB ATA/133 HDD.


try doing a F disk on the hard drive first then format it and make it the active drive and then try installing the xp software. if it has had another operating system say for instance windows ME it will not install on that drive without removing it. You can also go to www.maxtor.com and download their free hard drive tools to see if there is a problem that thier software can fix. the software is for free.

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 45 7200 RPM 30.7 GB HDD suddenly makes clicking sound when started and will not be recognized by Win XP OS. The drive had been working flawlessly. Any suggestions?


Clicking sounds is an indication that the platters have a bad device internally. Once that happens the hard drive is no good, run the serial# on Maxtors website to see if its still under warranty, gd lk

I need a driver for xp professional Where can I download one. Model 6l080L0sn L25DEJEG


Windows XP should automatically detect the hard drive. There should be no reason for a driver, however software to format and backup your drive can be found at Maxtor. It is important to format the drive before it is used.
