Transfer all your Music to the new drive first, just go to My Music open up the folder and select all, hit edit, move to folder and select the new drive, this should open up a considerable amount of space. If you haven't defraged your hard drive in a while this would also be a good time to do that. Hit the start button right click on My Computer/Manage/Disk Defragmenter select your C: and hit the analyze button, this will take a considerable amount of time to complete but your computer will thank you for it. Hope this helped.

Just bought a maxtor external hard drive 160gb. just plugged it in and computer recognises it, but what do i next? Ideally i would like to set it up to back up my pc once/twice a week. Help


Ok, you bought the hardware, now you need a software to do the backup. There is a freeware to download in the next link. You can buy one if you prefer, either on the Internet or where you bought your external Hard drive. But, do some research on this one, and you will see that it is secure.

Maxtor III 500 GB external hard drive is no longer recognized by computer. No driver installed ???


Drivers are not necessary for hard drives - as long as your computer recognized it when you first installed it, you're all set. It sounds like your hard drive has failed, or become disconnected. Check the connections for IDE or SATA, and power. If they're both connected properly, listen when you power up the computer to hear if that particular hard drive spins up. If it doesn't, it might be dead.
If you have access to another computer, try installing the drive into it temporarily and see if it is recognized in that computer. If the drive has failed, you might be able to get it replaced by Maxtor if it's still under warranty. Unfortunately they will not recover any data on the drive for you; you must pay a data recovery specialist to recover any data on the drive, and this is expensive, so only do this if it's extremely important data.

Maxtor basics external drive


Hi Nuisance101, I recall your running vista. Vista is a nightmare. If you cound only see the troubles we see on a daily basis here at FixYa you'ed understand. It's a common problem with Vista not seeing USB devices, externial devices. It does & then the next second it doesn't. Same for all external devices. I'm am 100% sure the trouble is not your system or your devices. It's Vista. I have gone over dozens of post from vista users. One would think MS has been on vacation since the release of vista. You can look at vista's web site for help for a possible fix, at this link. (I have no faith). MS blames driver software. Your Maxtor drive is external. Henve no driver software.
So it falls into that vista area of one time vista see's the drive & the next it does not.
Either way I though Maxtor addressed vista issues. I prefer Seagate drives myself. Personally know lots of people who's Maxtor's drives have just gone down for no reason. Seagate bought Maxtor.

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/hardware.mspx

Most of the post from vista users, claim users should check vista's updates often. Since Max Blaster did its job, I'm inclined to blame vista.

I wish I could give you a better fix or suggestion but I'm up against vista. That's why I run WinXP Pro. I do not have these problems.

Best wishes Nuisance101!
