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

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.

I'm Windows XP... I can copy many files to the Verbatim. But when I try to copy a 1GB+ file, the copy craps out. I Googled and found some Microsoft problem when copying 1GB+ files to external drives, but...

The usual limit is exactly 2GB, not 1GB.
It's a limitation of the file-system used for the directory of the disk-drive, when formatted according to the 'FAT32' specifications.

So, copy all the files currently on the Verbatim to your disk-drive.
Then, "reformat" the external (not the "internal") disk-drive, using the 'NTFS' file-system. This file-system has a maximum-file-size limitation for one file that is _much_ larger than the capacity of your Verbatim.

Then, copy all the "saved" files back onto the Verbatim.

Finally, copy your "large" files onto the Verbatim.

2. Go To Computer
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.

Maxtor mini one touch 4

When you were in device manager did you notice if it was enabled? Did you try to force install the hardware somewhere else, or did you try to change what driver was used?

IO Device Error

My Maxtor died like this. The disk was OK, it was the electronics that blew. I bought a new empty disk drive box and fitted the disk drive and fixed it. Years later the disk still works in the replacement box and power supply. I got my files and data back with the disk drive in the new box. The size of that disk looks small today. It may be Parallel (PATA) and you need a PATA box, that is harder to find as obsolete. You need to try the disk first in another drive holder.

So PATA and SATA??? Look here and read up about it with pictures too:
https://askleo.com/whats_the_difference_between_sata_and_pata_and_ide/


An external disk unit has three main parts.
1. The disk drive.
2. The electronics box.
3. The power supply.

My local hard disk (c: drive) become not accessible

If it's an IDE you can slave it into a working system & hopefully see it & copy the data off. If it's a seiral ATA SATA I/II, you'll need to add it to a working system. (All SATA's are masters). Again if seen, try to copy your data off. In both types it's a shot worth taking. Luck!
