Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
Just out of the box, the Windows XP operating system on my laptop won't recognize the (external) hard drive. It notifies me there was a failure.
I took it back to the store. One guy there said, Oh yeah, your machine's four years old (your OS). It won't recognize a hard drive larger than 200 Gigs (or whatever). Maybe so. Anyway, returned it.

Jumpered wrong or its a fake drive (knockoff) but doubtful so the real diagnostics is
start run diskmgmt.msc in it you will find if drive is unalocated or not even detected. if its not detected goto run type eventvwr and check in system for errors ..
im starting to think upper and lower cdrom filters are causing usb issue. i had issues with old zip drive software causing this.
