There is no manual for this drive and no drivers are required. if not recognized by your o/s check to see if you have the correct adaptor with a green light on the bottom of it. i have 2 of these drives and last week one couldn`t be found, i tried switching usb ports, then tied it on my laptop under vista which used to work, then did a system recovery in cas of corrupted usb drivers or registry. the drive still wouldn`t appear. when i plugged it in i would hear a beep, but somtimes the computer would find it and show it in the devices list, but it showed as a usb mass storage device, but no hdd.
i assumed both adapters for the 2 drives from maxto would be the same, however the drive that works is 12 volts 3 amp. the drive the can`t be recognized is 12 volts 2.5 amps. the green light is on solid and the front drive lights blinking, but i figured nothing to lose so i swapped out the adapters, and voila! my dead drive works like a charm with th 12 volt 3 amp adapter. with the old adapter 12 volts 2.5 amps it sounded licke a clock ticking. now its super quiet. to be sure of any drive damage i moved all the filef to my main drive and formatted it with " full" format. now i have to swap the adapter back to the other drive and pull of the data and reformat it. and buy a new adapter for the other drive @12 volts 3 amps. hope this helps not too confusing.

Maxtor Basics 320 GB external harddrive cant be recognized


There's a good chance the shop you bought the drive from didn't have SP3 installed. For some reason, SP3 has an issue with USB peripheral devices. Windows has created a patch to rectify the problem. Click on the link below and install the "Fixit" patch to enable your PC to recognize your HD. Best of luck.
