Problem with Maxtor USB hard drive
Hi i am head of Technical department of Management organization and i have made a big mistake ,about 4 month ago i bought a Portable Maxtor USB hard drive x with 80 GB capacity for backups of publishing dept., it was ok but now when we connect it to any computer though new USB device is recognized new drive is not shown in mycomputer in my storage list the name of device is mentioned but no drive is made for that.
I have lost warranty card and we need data in it as we need the device it self.
