Thanks for the follow up.
The maxtor and an iomega drive I have are both not recoginzied in the Symantec Recovery mode (either through the standard ghost disk or accessed through the hard drive on boot up). The d: back up partition on my harddrive was too small long ago for ghost, so I started useing my external hard drive as a back up source (the iomega and later the maxtor). The recovery disk is the standard Symantec cd. I went to restore the computer and the recovery program could not find the files or see the drives. It did recognize the SanDisk U3 memory stick that was plugged in, the cd emulation worked there.

The usb hard drive is new, Maxtor onetouch 4. I am not using the maxtor back up software.
Thanks!! Still really puzzled by this - have had to reinstall everything in the meanwhile. Not a ghost fan at the moment I'm afraid.

Most likely, the Standard Symantec Recovery Disk from Norton Ghost 10 doesn't include the drivers for this drive. Since Norton Ghost 10 does not allow the creation of a custom Recovery Disk, follow these instructions:
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks!
