Try the manufacturer's web-site: http://www.MAXTOR.com and see if their E-commerce site offers that part-number.
Or, given the part-number on the power-supply, do a search on eBay -- you'll probably find third-party "compatible" power-supplies.

My Maxtor 3200 has a gren light that is now blinking and the computer cannot start the drive. Code 10. What does this mean?


I had this problem. I learned that the power supply was defective. You can purchase a 12V 2amp power supply. This solved my problem. My green light was coming on but my computer didn't recognize the drive and I got the same Code 10 cannot start drive. I purchased a 12V 3amp power supply. It doesn't hurt to have more amps but you need at least 2amps.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

Maxtor 3200 personal storage will not load on my computer or any computer tried 2 other laptops - it was working but had to turn off desktop computer due to storm & then when computer was turned back...


Did you unplug the power supply for the computer and external drive seperately or simply turn off the computer? If the lights do not com on as expected for the Maxtor drive then the power supply for the drive may have been damaged. If the do it may just be an untimely failure in the drive. Did you shutdown the computer via windows or just "pull the plug" when it started storming? Fill me in on these details and I will help you narrow down the source of the problem. Chris
