External hd won't work Tags: Hard Drives Maxtor HD Power Storage Last response: August 26, 2010 9:24 PM in Storage Share Anonymous a b G Storage August 26, 2010 6:46:50 PM Hello, the power to my Maxtor 500GB external hard disk is out. Is this a problem with the power unit (AC converter) or the hard drive itself? More about : external work runningbot August 26, 2010 9:24:39 PM As in no lights lighting up on the external enclosure? Does your AC adapter have a "brick" with a light on it? If none of these lights are coming on the AC adapter is faulty. However this doesn't guarantee there is nothing wrong with the drive. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
