Maxtor hard drive


#1

The hard drive I was working on the is corrupted was 3.1 gb. Does anyone know how much a 10 or 20 gb hard drive would cost? (Maxtor) :frowning:


#2

Good luck finding one, unless you buy used.


#3

Usually, stores don’t carry any less than a 40 GB…

Heres an 18, but with a rather high pricetag for a maxtor…

you may be hooped. If you had a 3.1 your system may not be able to use a 40. Is the IDE connector on the motherboard black or blue?
If it’s black you may need to hunt down a 20GB…

If you can’t find one give me a post. I think i have some 8 GBs around.

black blue purple green white red yellow… color doesn’t mean a difference…

and you can buy a 20 - 40 gig and use over-lay software…

66 ata or 100 ata you’ll loose the performance but gain the size LOL… or you could always buy a promise card too LOL or a new computer…

ya know, i just slapped together a Duron 700 w a AsusA7V promise board and 15 GB from recovered parts and sold it same day for $275.
that woulda solved your problem.
(hated to flog it, that was a nice mb in it’s day, but maxed out at 1 GHz. Could’ve made a RAID server w like 4 drives and an Athlon 1300+ or something)


#10

It’s just pickin’ bits’ to even post this, but when in RAID mode, the promise controler only takes 2 drives.

That was a rockin board though. I have the A7V and the A7V133 models. The 133 has the RAID, but it also has a chipset fan and starts making a lot of noise. Runs very hot too. If left at idle, it would make my living room very stuffy.


#11

now i don’t feel so bad getting rid of it. it was only the A7V, the earlier on w/o ob sound too.


#12

So it’s my A7V that’s blasting my room’s temperature through the roof?


#13

the asus a7v and azv133’s both sucked the power up and created alot of heat… it was my first board too that i bought… and they will take up to a 1.4gig… if flashed…

8 Gb’s would be nice, becasue my buds just want this fixed up for there children, homework and stuff like that. Nothing special and expensive needed here.

But I aree, I don’t think ribbon color’s mean alot here. :smiley:


#15

Haha, I have NEVER heard of a computer actually bought just for homework, or at least it never turns out that way.


#16

Buuuuuuuuttttt I guess some kids do. Unless we lend them our Type writer in the basement. Hey that might save money! 8)
