How to Open External Maxtor HD (LE)? – Forums
Finally just used brute force and popped it open there were no screws anywhere hidden or otherwise. I had a similar problem and it was my usb add in card. There are no obvious screws, etc.
Already tried it on 3 computers XP, G4, Powerbook. I did download Maxtor’s PowerMax program and ran it, but it said something about not detecting a diskette or drive, so I closed and deleted it. HD still OK inside.

Putting my ear to it, I can hear it “thinking” or working, it just doesn’t operate. Have you looked in Disk Management to see if the drive shows there and if you can repartition and reformat it there?
Once you carefully remove the face plate sthe screws will be exposed. I was going to suggest that you RMA it, but I guess not now.
Obviously, with it being a blank drive, I’m not losing any files, but I still want what I paid for to operate, and I have a purpose for the drive, so I would like some assistance. Triple6Apr 27, Acomdata uses this method.

As triple says, it may need work, depending on what was done to it when you removed it. Log in or Sign up. I don’t know why people use these huge physically external drive enclosures to begin with!
