It is your driver related issue.
Check your operatign ssytem version is winxp sp2 ?
SP2 is perfact for usb 2.0
Also you can try to uninstall all usb driver and install inf update utility it is comes with motherbord disk.
You can uninstall usb drivers from computer with device manager .
For that go to my computer proeprty then hardware then device manager then uninstall all usb drivers.then restart the computer then check.
Also check your harddriver usb cable is working fine tryt all usb ports of computrer 1 by 1.
Also try in another computer.

Installing the external drive


In XP and Vista no need to install.
They will detect automatically.
To know, goto Windows explorer.

My maxtor 200GB drive is not recognized by my CPU anymore!


Hi Crkinard.. i think you shuld first find out whether the problem is with the external device or your computer... so check if the device is recognised by another system... as you have been using the device dor couple of years i think yours computer's drive for external devices should have been corupted.. so check out the device with some other computer.. if it is recognised in that computert then you can easily reinstalled the software for your device again..
