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.

Would like to erase 150gb maxtor external drive and start over


Connect the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the Maxtor.
Click FORMAT.
Choose Quick-Format.
When it completes (in a few seconds), all the files on the disk will be "gone",
because a "blank" Table-Of-Contents has replaced the previous Table-Of-Contents.

HD initialises but nothing allocated? BLANK?????


Hello,
Before trying out a 3rd party utility software,

What you should do is,

depending on your operating system,

Right-Click on 'My Computer Icon', then select

'Manage'.

When you get to Computer Management page,

Click on Disk Management on left hand side,

This will display ALL the disks installed on your system, either partitioned or not partitioned, formatted or not formatted.

Then go to the ones that are hidden, not created, or not displayed, right-click on it, then you'll see different actions that you can perform.

Also, in some instances, what you just need to do when you get to this page is to assign a new, distinct, drive letter apart from the ones already in use on the system.

This will automatically bring out the hidden drives.

Hope I have helped you out.

Goodluck

Maxtor 80 gb portable hard drive copying problem


Unless the data on the maxtor is very important You should format the drive, assuming you are using windows, go to my computer, right click on the drive, it should show the option to format. If the info is very important, my advice take it to a info recovery business.

How to format maxtor 80gb hard drive


Insert the drive into the bay and connect power and ribbon cable.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools >

Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management

Right click on the drive, click Mark Partition as Active then Format.

In this day and age, it's always best to format to NTFS file system.

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!

Maxtor One-Touch 4 750gb power light flashes and goes out straight away.


Try to remove the drive and connect it directly to another computer.
If still doesn't spin up then most likely the board has failed.
