How can I fix Data error cyclic redundancy check on a Maxtor External drive?
Posted on 2010-08-25
I really need your help. I have 465GB External drive (Maxtor) which has only 120 GB of data on it. The drive was working a few weeks ago but yesterday I noticed that I could not access the drive. The computer sees the drive but when I try to access the file on it I get the following errors:"You need to format the disk in drive" and "drive is not accessible, Data error cyclic redundancy check ". Please HELP. I need to access the files on the external drive.
I have connected the drive to a windows XP spk3 and a windows 7 (I thought that perhaps I will not have the error on the windows 7) but I'm getting the same errors.
Can anybody help me?
