Can i replace internal hard drive with 320 scorpio in dell 6400


as long as its the correct physical size in terms of dimensions and its the correct connector type ie SATA, PATA then it should be fine.

If its IDE you will need to check the jumpers are set correctly

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB Hard Drive
goes for about 180 bucks and it a IDE PATA Drive I do belive since your dimensions 2300 motherboard 3T237 is only IDE and does not have SATA

your motherboard can also handle 1 gig of ram so if you havent maxed out your motherboard yet I would highly suggest it. Ram for it wont cost you much either.

I would add the newer drive as a secoundary drive since I am sure that your operating system is pre loaded.

or you can also add external drives to your system as well for more storage as well and they are starting to come down in price as well. you have options it all depends what ya wanna do with it.

Drive won't mount


i had a maxtor one touch go bad and had to open the case and take it out of the external casing and put it into my computer as an internal drive. then it worked fine. it was a single drive.

just today i had a maxtor TB drive go bad, and since i think it has two drives inside it i am very worried that i will not be able to do the same thing.

Maxtor III 600 gb will not mount


What Operating system are you using ?

I'll assume your using windows.

Try going to disk management
it may not have any partitions

you can get into the disk management by pressing start --> Control Panel ---> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Disk Management.

Once your in Disk Management you should see the 600gb

After you find it right click and either format / import foreign disk

(This applies to internal hard drive only)
If Hard drive is not listed you may have to set jumpers correctly or check bios to make sure hard drive is detected

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor


If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.

Maxtor 300Gb 6L300SO Internal HD


I had a similar problem a month ago. Go to the Seagate site(They own Maxtor now) http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/ Click on the Customer Service and support link, then the warranty link. Supply the serial number and they'll give you the warranty info. I got an RMA number from the site, and received my (Refurbished) drive in about 10 days. They supplied a box to return the original drive, and I apid the postage. A very quick, easy and satisfactory exchange.
