Hi there we purchased a maxtor basics 500gb hard drive about 3 years ago. we have had children in that time and unfortunetly our two year old daughter dropped it. we have taken it to a service store but...


If it is the external hard drive enclosure that is broken then yes. But if it is the hard drive itself that is broken then no.
From what happened I'm thinking that it is the external hard drive enclosure that is broken. That being said, you can easily buy one without the hard drive online. When doing this be sure you know what kind of hard drive is in your Maxtor enclosure. This is important because you need to be sure that your hard drive and enclosure are compatible. Check to see if it uses SATA, ATA, or PATA connectors and then buy the corresponding external hard drive enclosure.
Once you have bought your new empty external hard drive enclosure, it is simply a matter of opening up your Maxtor enclosure and moving the hard drive inside to your newly purchased enclosure and connecting it to your computer.
To avoid problems like this in the future, look into "cloud based storage" to back up all of your data securely online.

BROKEN PLUG?


You can buy another external housing and then just swap the hard drive itself over to the new housing. The housing only cost in the 30 buck range if not cheaper. If you need to get the data off, you can also buy an EIDE/SATA to USB adapter that will allow the connection between an unhoused hard drive and a computer. CompUSA sells them for around 20-25 bucks.

I installed from original CD and my computer running Vista does not find maxtor ll external HD. Is it compatable with Vista? why does it not find the drive?


Start "Device Manager".
Make sure that the USB devices are "ready" and "enabled".
Then, connect the external USB device.

Can you try the Maxtor external device in some *OTHER* notebook?
If it does not work, then the Maxtor device has a problem.

Broken external hard drive


if the broken piece is internal and rattling around, it is most likely terminal and you need to replace the hard drive, if it is an external part or a connector you may try a computer shop to see if it can be repaired, but more than likely that will cost more than replacing the drive, but they may be able to recover any data that is on it


Good Luck

Maxtor Hard drive tries to work


I had this problem also. It was either dropped or something fell on it. You have to get it repaired or a new one. If you have VERY important information that cannot be replaced, consider a data recovery service from your local stores.

Good luck with your Drive.

Go to the MAXTOR web site and download their free diagnostic utility. Then, remove the hard drive from the external case and connect it to a spare connector internally inside your desktop. Run the diagnostic utility and it will tell you if the drive is still OK (it probably is). If so, you will only need to replace the interface card in your external drive.
