I've searched and tried all the drivers consistent with Maxtor drives and
Vista and had no luck at all. Still without the external drive... anymore

Try this if you haven't already: in Device Manager... delete that
device that shows the yellow exclamation point and restart Windows.

Thanks again, Rob

Thank you Cyberwolf ... I did as you suggested and there is a Mass
Device with a yellow exclamation mark beside it. I clicked and used the
automated "look for a solution" with no results. What next please?

Thanks again sir, Rob.

I have a Maxtor DiamondMax 21 320gb PATA (ultra ATA) hard drive
installed in
an external case that I used on my previous OS - XP Professional.
case I
had purchased from NewEgg and it worked really well via a USB
connection. No
software was necessary, I simply plugged it in a USB slot and it
displayed as a Mass Storage Device. I have tried the following

1. Loading the latest MaxBlast software provided by Maxtor
2. Changing the jumper from Cable Select to Master and back

I am currently using Windows Vista Home Premium 64 with SP1 ...

Thank you most kindly in advance, Rob.> > > > >
If you go into the Control Panel -> System & Maint -> Device
.. Does it show up in there when plugged in? If not, are there
unknown devices? (yellow exclamation mark in front of device)

Sounds like you need to find the specific driver for your hard drive on
the manuf website. Perhaps the file you downloaded isnt the correct one
for your device!
