External hd won't work Tags: Hard Drives Maxtor HD Power Storage Last response: August 26, 2010 9:24 PM in Storage Share Anonymous 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?

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. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>External hd won't work> Related ressources: ForumExternal monitor wont work after windows boots up ForumLInux won't boot on my external HD ForumGigabyte raedon hd 7970 won't work ?
