I thought I had Maxator storage device on my computer. it may have been inadvertanly removed. The only thing i can think of is to reinstall it from the disc. amIi right?
nothing I just discovered the problem
Hi,It is unlikely that removing software can cause this, since a storage device would have been re-discovered by Windows on the next boot.Are you using Windows 7, Vista or XP?
Click start, and type:device manageOn the list that opens up, click Device Manager.Expand Disk Drives. What do you see there?
A list of hardware. maxitor is not on the list
Thank you. So this tells us the maxtor storage device is not physically attached to the computer, or that it has failed.If it is an external device, like a USB drive, it may be powered off or the USB cable may be disconnected.If it is an internal drive, it can't be disconnected or powered off, which tells us it has failed.Hope this makes sense!J.
