The drive is starting to fail. back up your data & star getting prices on a replacement drive. you can go to maxtor.com & download a promram called powermax. it is a dos based program that is made by maxtor to test there drives. it usually needs a floppy disk. there is no repair for this type of fault in a drive. but powermax may give you a little more info. on you drive. good luck

Disconnecting when copying large files (about 1gb and above)


that means it there are bad sectors on the hard drive. search for Hirens utility boot disk with google and and download the software. After you downloaded it you will have to write the files to a cd. Then boot up with the disc and select Hard drive tools or HDD tools, then select hard drive re-generator to detect and repair bad sectors if there are over 500 bad sectors then replace the drive.

I get error code 1802 on ibm thinkpad r40


THE SOLUTIONThe solution to this error is to make sure that there is sufficient disk space to hold the files that Windows Installer has to copy to the hard drive. Removal of unnecessary files in the hard drive until the free space is large enough to hold the files being copied is the remedy for this problem. you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive or
control panel administrive tools,computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart

hope this helps

Windows -Delayed write failed. Windows was unable to save all the data for the file D:\$MFT


You've got a "hardware" problem with the disk-drive. Windows cannot write an updated 'MFT' ("Master File Table") to reflect files that you have added/deleted/updated on the Maxtor.

Copy all the files from the Maxtor, e.g., onto another external drive, or "burning" to DVD disks, and then replace the Maxtor disk-drive.

Hi, I have a Toshiba 80GB MK8037GSX 2.5" SATA in


1) have checked bios cannot see hdd mounted.

That is BAD -- the disk-drive could have "died".



2) tried a seagate hdd works fine so connections in laptop seem to be working

That shows that your motherboard is GOOD, but that your disk-drive is BAD.



3) can hear hardrive trying to do something as can hear harddrive usual noise, continous noise for about 5 sec before getting the error message

That is BAD -- the disk-drive is "dying".



4) no rattling or crackling noise from drive apart from the above

That is BAD -- none of the files can be read from your disk.




i have created a ubuntu boot up disk which allows me to access laptop but does shows error when locating hdd,

That is BAD.




once in ubuntu i can access internet but it does not show the windows partition of the harddrive, only shows ubuntu as opearing system, confused.

That is BAD. Only the CD/DVD disk has been mounted -- Ubuntu could not mount the disk-drive.




In regards to ubuntu working does this mean the hdd is ok?

No, it means that your motherboard is working.






and is there anyhting i can try via ubuntu to locate the files?

No. The disk-drive is "dead".




There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

3. Right click on the Drive
4. Click Properties
5. Go To Tools
6. Run an Error Check.

That should help, if not let me know so we can proceed with something else

My laptop no longer recognizes my external hard drive. Device Manager gives me an error code 10.


Connect the Maxtor to a different computer, to see if the device works in some other computer.

If the warranty is still valid, exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

If the warranty has expired, disassemble the casing, and disconnect the USB-to-disk-drive interface from the disk-drive.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer, to see if the USB-to-disk-drive interface is the part that failed.

If all else fails, search online for commercial "data recovery services" -- for a large amount of money, they will disassemble the disk-drive, repair it, just long-enough to copy your files.

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB 6Y080L YAR41BW0 internal hard drive not working think it might be the PCB Board not working.


It's possible that you're correct.

However, finding a Maxtor drive with an identical PCB is not going to be easy. Once you do, you can disconnect the "spinning" part of the disk-drive away from the PCB, and then swap PCB, and see if you can then QUICKLY(!) copy all 80GB to a "new" disk-drive.

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.
