Hello

It is going to be out within no time. If the bios still detects it, retrive the data from it to an other drive as fast as possible. Otherwis you will lost all data. Screech sound is due to its takeup record tip touches the media by anyway. The disc may have got a stron hit, shock etc.OK.

Maxtor 320 GB mini not working


If it shows up as a USB mass storage device it:-
1. Has power
2. It is connected to the computer via USB.
3.The correct software has been loaded for the hard drive. 
The beep sound is probably an error message saying that the drive is not responding properly inside the case.

Hard drives Drives have been known to stick or not start up due to power cables or ribbon cables being dislodged. Try pushing these back into place.

If this is not the problem go to the Maxtor site (maxtor.com) and report the problem with the drive, not the USB which appears to functioning correctly.

Cannot get external hard drive to work


- Make sure that the hard drive (HD) is properly connected to the computer.

- Try connecting it to a different computer to make sure that the HD is the problem.

- Check the Disk Management in your computer to see if the HD could still be detected. Once detected, reformat the HD and it should work again.

To check the Disk Management:

NOTE: Make sure that the external HD is connected and turned ON.

1. Right-click "My Computer" (XP) or "Computer" icon (Vista)
2. Select Manage and click on "Disk Management".
3. From the Disk Management, you will see a drive letters
4. Write down all the drive letters and then disconnect the Maxtor HD from the computer.
5. If there's a drive letter that disappears, then that is your Maxtor HD.
6. Reconnect the Maxtor HD and reformat it. You may right-click the drive letter and there's an option to format the HD.

If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned on, mostly, it's already defective.

Have a great day!

Whenever I use my Maxtor Onetouch 3 I have quite a loud whirring noise with it.


This is probably normal, some hard drives are noisier than
others, and the tend to get louder as they get older.

The old Maxtor drives were very loud and quite unreliable,
but I have not tested their new ones.
(once burned, twice shy)

Personally I prefer Seagate. I have 8 Seagate drives in a single
machine including a RAID, and they perform very well.

They are also much quieter than Western digital or Maxtor.

Finally, whirring is OK, grinding is not. If it is louder than
you feel comfortable with, erase is with a secure file wiper,
such BC wipe by Best Crypt, and then take it back to where
you bought it (give them hell)

Also if the drive suddenly got a lot louder than it was before,
this could mean that the spindle bearings are gone and you
need to replace it before you loose all data on it.

Also, if this is used only as a backup drive, as the manufacturer
intended, then you should power it down when you are not using it.

Before turning of the power switch on the drive, though, make
sure that Windows has completed and committed all the
pending write-back cycles. Click on the green arrow on
you task-bar /icon tray: and click "Safely Remove Drive"
windows will then tell you when its safe to turn off the drive.

Hope this helps, please rate my answers.
