I was given a 40g Maxtor HD that is still in warranty, but it doesn't seem
to "power up" So, Powermax doesn't find it. Maybe there is no solution to
this, Maxtor may RMA it without Powermax being run on it.....if you have an
idea or two, let me know.
The HD should spin with only the power cable applied. If it does not,
make sure the power connector pins are not bent or failing to make
contact. If there is no such problem, send it back for replacement.
