Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
On finding my drive not showing in My Computer I opened device manager to find that my maxtor personal storage 3200 wont start. All my files are on this drive so i need to get to them, Ive uninstalled the device, re-installed it and the same problem persists so its nothing to do with my computer, the drive looks to have a problem, what do I do please????
Hi I understand your problem, You said that you checked in device manger,it didn't started. Did you checked whether is it detected BIOS. If its not try connecting the IDE cable for the CD Drive,if you found the drive detected in My Computer. Then there is no issues with the Hard Drive,something needs to be checked in Motherboard port. You can contact your computer manufacture to get replacement of motherboard...

When you plug in the drive does it sound like its spinning? Did you uninstall the usb drivers and reinstall the usb drivers? Is there another way of connecting the drive without using usb? Is the drive under warrenty? Have you tried connecting it to another computer? There could be a number of reasons its not turning on. Need to figure out the answers to my questions first to narrow down what it could be.
