    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 beeps but doesn't work


I have the same problem with an Iomega. After searching for a while i finally found this case report:
http://www.iomegasupportforums.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=15560&view=next&sid=8fcaf3c05f1bae35c079433c553ee28b
It seems that there is an "Onboard controller failure. It's not putting the drives in JBOD and only displaying one physical drive to your computer. You need to contact technical support about a replacement."
So it seems to be software but it still is a pain in the **** to repair/replace. But maxtor/iomega can charge whatever for a repair because your data is priceless right? sucks

Maxtor basics personal storage 3200 Mac user


i had the same problem but i found the solution!
It's right that you opened up disk utility. I found the solution here: http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SATA_Troubleshooter_-_Mac_OS_X_Installation_Basics&vgnextoid=a0a44a3cdde5c010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD#storage

but short version of it all:
Basically you just need to format the drive by selecting it on the left in disk utility. Then select the erase tab. Then change MS-DOS (FAT) to Mac OS Extended. Finish by clicking erase. Mine works fine now. Hope you can get yours working too!

You need to open the enclosure and either put the drive in another enclosure or connect it directly to your computer.

Or you can pay to send it to data recovery people and they will get all the data off.
