Go to the seagate website (they bought maxtor) and download the windows version of maxblast. That is if you are using that as a spare. bootable cd rom version if it's not.

I have a Maxtor One-Touch III 750GB External Drive that has worked well for over a year. This past weekend the icon disappeared from my desktop and I can't get it back. I'm running a MaxOS X 10.5.5 OS...


mine will also occasionally disappear. i have had to do a restart of the pc which gets it back for my 160 gb firewire external.
the blinking light may be indicative of the hdd going bad, though.

My maxtor 750GB external drive is not recognized by my CPU anymore!


It's probably either WinXP and a hub fighting over drive IDs, special drivers you installed but haven't been upgrading, or the thing isn't powered up properly.  Go to.  Oh, and your CPU (Intel, ARM, AMD, whatever) never recognizes hard drives; it's up to the OS.  What OS?  That's how you present a problem properly, in the right category.

Hi there rsweeny50,

If you can see the drive on 'My Computer', it's working.

Try this, Right click on the icon for your new drive, then click Properties.

It should show a pie chart where the whole thing is available space.

See? Easier done than said!!

If you have any problems or additional questions, click the ASK ME button.

I have recently purchased a new p.c. i didnt want to lose my files from my old p.c so i bought a maxtor 500gb external hard drive to back up my files and put them onto my new p.c, i am a novice and not...


It's important to lose your files from time to time, but you can also use a migration tool to help you, or just pull the drive from the old machine to keep spare in the new machine (and put a fresh drive in the old machine unless you are going to recycle it.)  Imaging the old drive won't work if you have much encryption going on.

  It's simple to observe: Know what you're doing!  Read books on PC operating systems (e.g. bsd and windows) and keep very good track of what you want to preserve and what you could be doing better.

I have just bought a maxtor basiss external portable hard drive and i have connected to my computer. what is the next step to use as my compter is running out of space on the c:drive? thanks


Transfer all your Music to the new drive first, just go to My Music open up the folder and select all, hit edit, move to folder and select the new drive, this should open up a considerable amount of space. If you haven't defraged your hard drive in a while this would also be a good time to do that. Hit the start button right click on My Computer/Manage/Disk Defragmenter select your C: and hit the analyze button, this will take a considerable amount of time to complete but your computer will thank you for it. Hope this helped.

I have replaced my D slave drive, from a Maxtor 150gb to a Seagate ST3500630A 500gb. It shows up in device manager, but not in explorer. I have Windows XP pro.


TRY THIS:

Right click on My Computer Icon on desktop.
Select Manage
Double-click on storage on right side window.
Double-click disk management.

Should see your hard drive listed. Right Click on it and select format. Make sure you select right drive to format as is erases all data.

After formatting close window and see if it is listed in explorer.



Hope this helps!
