    you could hook it up and run a virus scan on that drive just to check.

    abit more detail about what the drive does or doesn't do would be helpful in offering you the best solution.

    Is it not recognized by the bios ?

Maxtor 3200 driver


That drive should be supported by most if not all operating systems without a driver.. (windows has one built in).. I did find some info saying that windows 7 has a problem with early drives. Presumably 8 and 10 would also have problems. You may find more info here:

click OK.
Your drive should now show up in My Computer. All of your Data should still be there also.
