External hard drive problem

With my easyshare 5300 connected to my pc, i have problems with my external hard drive (Maxtor 500 GB). It is not possible to save any work done on autocad files which are on the hard drive, but works fine with the printer disconnected. Please help!

    This occurs for me with any USB-connected storage device (flash drive, external hard drive, digital camera, etc). The only thing that I can think of is that it is some sort of IRQ conflict.

    When attempting to save to any device, it appears to work at first, but then gets corrupted and the device must be reformatted. Everything works fine with the printer USB cable disconnected. Anybody find a solution to this one?

    That's just shockingly messed up. How about if you connect the printer to a different USB controller's ports, or avert the wacky mode control the printer's driver is having on things through user control panels?

The problem is that the printer, being a composite device, takes a lot of energy from the computer USB ports. Some computers, such as some Dell computers, have problems with USB ports due to a cheap manufacturing. What I can suggest you is to simply unplug the printer when you want to use the HDD, because no matter what you do, you'll have the same problem and that's because of the computer that won't supply enough power to the USB ports.
Also, if you are using a laptop, remember to keep it plugged to the power so it can provide more energy to the USB ports.

I have a maxtor III usb 2.0 500 GB external hard drive. the light on the front goes out and works sometimes. when the light goes out the external drive gets disconnected . i checked for loose connections....


Possibly, the USB is not receiving current enough and occasionally it resets the USB interface. Try connecting it to another system, or to a powered USB host, and see what happens.
Another possibility (but you'd need to disassemble the external enclosure and connect directly the disk inside to a SMART-capable motherboard) is that the hard disk is developing a fault.

External HDD is not working


You probably have conficker worm because it stops your pc from reading usb's or any external HDD. Or the worm might of infected your HDD since it spreads through usb and internet. Seriously you should get your PC scanned just incase. P.S. Its just a possibility.

MAXTOR EXTERNAL HD IS NOT OPENING


Does it give you an error message ? Are you running Windows XP or Vista? If so post it here so the problem can be further narrowed down.
You might want to try a chkdsk.

In Windows XP and Vista both, a shortcut to get to the command console is holding the Windows Key and pressing R.

in the command console, type:
chkdsk X: /f /r

Where X is the drive letter of the drive giving you problems.

This will run a chkdsk on your external, restoring files and folders that cannot be accessed.

I also have a Maxtor External hard drive and have to do this quite often. It's pretty frustrating.

Installing the external drive


In XP and Vista no need to install.
They will detect automatically.
To know, goto Windows explorer.
Find drive letter other than your local drive.
Usually called "removable disk".
