Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (M1227310) Hard Drive

Maxtor 3200 not spinning...

I can't get my drive to start up at all. I knocked the lead out while it was copying a file :S not good, I know. Device manager acknowledges the device is there, but won't allow me to connect or disconnect. It even goes as far as to make the standard windows 'bleep' to let me know a USB device is being connected/disconnected. I've checked the wiring etc but to no avail. Also, if the device is plugged in during start-up, it stops windows from booting. Any ideas would be most appreciated :)

    Well, I checked in device management again and found it was detected but albeit with the added bonus of the hard disc not spinning at all. It gives me a code 10. I've tried it on my other pc, but it doesn't detect it. This is, however, apparently down to known driver issues. This to me still isn't clear, as one machine has the drivers, one doesn't and neither can detect it. If anyone can link me to the drivers, that might give me a running head start. At least when I can know for sure if another machine can detect it, I can deduce whether it's a hardware issue with the drive itself or just a configuration one.

Re-connect the hdd to pc. Go into Device Manager and select Disk Management. If the HDD is displayed here, see what options are available prior to a re-Format. 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.

My desk top crashed and I have all my files backed up on a Maxtor 3200. How do I down load my backup files from my Maxtor 3200 to my new lap top. I can't find any paper work for it.

Hi,

Just plug into your laptop and find the drive for it, then enter into the files that you want to put on your laptop.
Copy and paste these files into your laptop hard drive, don't cut and paste just copy and paste them.

That way you will always have them incase your laptop should go down.

Hope this helped.

Thanks

Jason

I can not see my usb maxtor 3200 hard drive in my

this could idicate a low power supply for the device. some computer do have front usb ports, the truth about this front port is that they lack the power to supply some of this devices (being 200GB). If you are connecting it to the front usb then try using the main one behind the pc.
also note that usb polling which acts by reducing power consumed by the device may also be a cause(that is if you are using a modified version of windows other than that from microsoft since the modifier can alter that as well). Also try using it on a friends pc to see the outcome.
do let me know of the out come.
good luck

HD not spinning

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

Corrupted file message.can't open 3200

Had something like the same. The contents of an entire folder dissappeared.

I made a backup of all data I needed from the disk, then re-partitioned and re-formatted it. Now it seems to be ok again, but I lost my trust, so it will be a nice 500GB temporary folder for my PC.

from a command line, chkdsk was not able to run. Only at next boot. It started cycling with the same message all the time. Unfortunately I didn't copy the message

Maxtor 3200 usb personal storage

The USB drive is not the C: drive. Open the windows file manager and you should be able to find it. Right click the Start button and open Explorer.
