just bought and installed a new maxtor diamondmax 40g drive, came with nothing but the drive, installed ok, auto detected ok, cannot format, downloaded maxblast3 for windows from the maxtor site but when i install it and than try to reboot, says maxblast has encountered an error and must close???? please please will someone tell me how to format the drive.
leo 49 i am not a computer guru, and can't get to grips with DOS, if you go to the maxtor site for model 6e040l0, you can download maxblast3 (1.77m) or maxblast3 for windows 3.4m have both, made a boot floppy, but do not understand the dos commands, also can't understand why the copy of mb3 for windows that i copied to a cd will not run correctly, DOES ANYONE please have the original maxblast installation cd that they can emial to me.
thanks leo, now have the drive up and running, but it did not push it to D drive, assigned J??, renamed maxtor, icon in my computer, able to send files to and run, still can't run the maxblaster3 cd-rom, would someone please send me a copy.
leo supposedly the cdrom has all sorts of programs on it that allow you to copy the complete existing c drive, etc, just miffed that i can't seem to get a clean copy. as far as i am concerned, it should have came with the hard drive.
