Error Performing Inpage Operation

By KKRipken ·
Help! I have the message "Error Performing Inpage Operation" on a Maxtor external hard drive and can't get at any of the data. The drive shows up under a different drive letter and name than it should and gives that message when I click on the drive. When I look at it in device manager it shows as empty. I found pointers to the Microsoft support article but that covers the cause, not the solution. Any idea?

If it helps, it's a Maxtor 300GB Serial ATA HD 7200/16MB/S-ATA-150 run in a USB enclosure. WinXP Pro, USB port is fine, drive spins, etc.

you can see the drive in explorer right click on it and select properties, tools, error checking and select check now. Tick both boxes and select start.

Let us know how you get on.
