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

Unrecognized external HDD


This message usually indicates one of two things:

1 - The driver for the device is not loaded or has become corrupted (I trust that one of the other troubleshooting steps you took included reinstalling the drivers...) or more likely,

2 - The device has malfunctioned. More likely than not, the hard drive itself is OK, only the electronics in the case has failed.

If the device is still under warranty, give Maxtor Customer Service a call and get it replaced. Of course all of the data you have will be gone unless you can convince them to send you ONLY the replacement case and electronics, not the hard drive. In which case you will have to open the old case, remove the hard drive and put it into the new case.

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.

Hard drive files recovery


If the drives internal mechanics have failed then theres not much to do. You can try to take it to a professional datarecovery.

It will cost you.

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.
