Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive

4 Answers

Cannot find hard drive

I've had the 3200 for about one year and it worked fine till yesterday. I click on the desktop icon for the drive and my computer does not recognize it anymore. I troubleshooted it and it gave me a CODE 10. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Still, my computer can't find it. I went to Maxtor's website to get drivers but there are no drivers. Please help. Need to get my music files back. Ugh!!!!!!

    Same problem....my computer recognized my Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 for about a year then all the sudden it doesn't recognize it anymore. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but also got the "Code 10" error. I've unplugged every plug on the dang thing and plugged it back in again and still nothing. Getting ready to drop-kick it across the room.

Remove entire hard drive and circuit board from housing...disconnect 4 wire power plug from hard drive....find a desktop computer and use one of the power supply cords from it...should power up after reconnecting power and USB cables to maxtor unit

I've had the same as you guys for the last couple of days - just unplugged the power from the back of the drive and plugged it back in - that seems to have done the trick for me, hope it works for you.

How do i re-format my Maxton hard drive to FAT 32?


plug in via usb, goto my computer, find the icon for your external hard drive. Make double sure you have found the right icon, then right click on the icon it should give a menu which has "FORMAT" about half way down.Click on that. Alternatively richt click on the Drive icon and goto "proprties", this should give you a tabbed page with format on one of its tabs, NB NB you will totally wipe windows if you choose the wrong drive to format, it is very very difficult to recover from this. so take care.
