For no apparent reason my PC sends the message "file corrupted and not accessible" when I try to open my Maxtor 3200 storage device. I haven't been able to resolve by restarting or changing ports.

    I have the same problem, when I try to access the Maxtor 3200 it, my computer shows the external hard drive is corrupt and unreadable. It was working fine until just recently. I have had this unit for about 2 yrs and do not use it excessively. I even tried another computer thinking it may be my laptop that was the problem, however to no avail it reads the same. I have many valuable family picturs on this hard drive....does anyone have any ideas?

Had something like the same. The contents of an entire folder dissappeared.

I made a backup of all data I needed from the disk, then re-partitioned and re-formatted it. Now it seems to be ok again, but I lost my trust, so it will be a nice 500GB temporary folder for my PC.

from a command line, chkdsk was not able to run. Only at next boot. It started cycling with the same message all the time. Unfortunately I didn't copy the message

My maxtor 500gb usb hard drive is not responding when I plug to my pc, so I can't access to any of my file


hello,
-make sure that the cables from the ext hard drive is properly connected like power if there is and USB -try other USB port -try other USB devices -try other USB cable for that Maxtor -try other computer
the reason why you are doing that is to know if the USB port is broken of if the ext hard drive is not responding.
cheers.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, after years of use my Vista machine now tells me that the USB Device isnt recognised.


However last month I found that the Maxtor is no longer recognisable to my machine. Reading through related postings on other sites it appears that Vista updates from Microsoft may be the reason why this functionality has suddenly ceased. I presume the security updates in particular may have meant that the Maxtor 3200 is also considered a potential threat. The question is who will take responsibility for resolving this issue of Maxtor 3200 users no longer being able to access their back up files via their Vista based machines. Personally I believe the onus is with Microsoft

hope this helps

Hello,

There are a few reasons this can happen. First if you're using a windows XP or older device you will need a driver to run the harddrive. Second if ever it was encrypted you will have to use a password to access the drive once the driver is in place.

If you have the driver in place and still get errors you can try running the factory diagnostic tool to figure out what is wrong and then I can advise you how to proceed.

The drivers and diagnostic tool are available at the below link:

I have a Maxtor Personal Storage and I am


I found this info on Seagate forum (Seagate owns Maxtor). http://forums.seagate.com/stx/board/message?board.id=PersonalStorage&thread.id=38

The error 10 is an indicator of a drive gone bad. But, there are a few on there that say they were able to get them working again. If you device is under warranty, try working with Seagate support first for a replacement. If you have data on them, you may need a recovery specialist to salvage that data.

I/O device error


Hmm? Your drive may be corrupted which makes it unuseable. I hate to admit your files may be lost at this point also. In order to reuse the unit, repartion and format the unit. I hope this helps.

Maxtor 3200 error message


Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If it doesn't make any unusual sounds and doesn't show up in BIOS - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.  if it is recognized with full capacity and only files are unreadable - try to scan it with demo version of some software like R-Studio or GetDataBack.

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)!

Maxtor 3200 Some files not accessible when I switch computers


Unreliable drive. Remove and hit with a sledgehammer. Trust me. Do it now before u lose all your data. The 3200's are nothing but trouble. Did u know they use seagate hard drives?

External Hard drive Failure


Seems to me like your MFT of FAT is corrupt. You can go ahead and do a format on it by right clicking and going to format. You should then be able to copy your backed-up files back onto the drive.
