I would check to make sure that the data cable is in the right way and not turned around and they are all plugged in all the way on the drive and the motherboard also make sure that the jumpers on the drive itself is set for a single drive and not duel drives

The max hard disk size for this model Dell is 80Gb.
To use your 250Gb hard drive, install this Hard drive into an USB hard drive case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Cannot get 2 IDE devices to show in bios.


Does the computer have two IDE channels? If so set the Maxtor HDD as master on the primary channel and the DVD drive as master on the secondary channel. Also right click on My Computer, left click on Manage and left click on Disk Management and see if the drives show up there. Also check the boot order in BIOS.

How do I make my MAXTOR Hard Drive 7Y250M0 a slave?


A slave drive is defined by removing the jumper (pin sleeve) completely from the drive. Then go into your BIOS and if it doesn't auto-detect as slave, manually change the settings and you'll be good. You shouldn't have to go into your BIOS.

If you can see it as slave in BIOS, but not in Windows that means the drive is not formatted properly and to do so, Right click on My Computer in Windows and goto Manage. It should load the Computer Management window. From there goto Disk Management under Storage in the left side browser. You should see the Hard Drive there, right click on that and format it.

That should do it.

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer


If this is a Maxtor drive that you password protected and now you can't get it to work on another PC or new hard drive. I had the same problem. Fortunatly I had set it up on another PC prior to setting up password protection, so when I tried it at work I discovered that the software will not even load on the PC becuase of the Password protection. If possible you need to use the hard drive that it was first set up and turn off the password protection. Then it should work on any PC.

Can't format or create partition......


It maybe that your motherboard bios cannot support 250GB and needs an update, but caution applies here. The other problem maybe that you need to use the hardrive on the 'CS' (Cable select setting). Lastly if you already have a pc running, use this drive as the slave the go to the Maxtor website to make use of the diagnostic/formatting and partition tools.
