Tip & How-To about Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus 750GB External USB 2.0/FireWire 400 Hard Drive

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus 750gb temporary fix / refrigerator

I could not recover any files and the drive would not id on my desktop. I kept plugging in and out the power chord to see if it would ID. It did briefly (3 minutes) and then started clicking again. My whole system would freeze until I unplugged it. Even with SeaTools. Then I thought it was trying to recalibrate to find track 0 so I put it into the refrigerator for 6 hours (42deg F), took it out and powered it up. I was able to back up all my files to my DVD burner and now it is back in the fridge. Go figure......Greg R.

My flash drive worked perfectly last night and now doesnt light up. how can you repare it so you can see the files?

A flash drive cannot be repaired, if it brakes all the data on it is lost and the stick id good for the skip.
 If you're lucky it will still have some life left in it so plug it in another pc, recover what you can of your files and junk it.

Need to recover files from WD drive that was attached to IMAC when it shut down from Kernal panic. Files were there, some files remain. The files that remain are the ones on the drive before I downloaded the Mac fix. I saw the files after I did the fix creating one partition and then added 50 gigs plus. Unfortunately, when the IMAC went into kernal panic, the external drive went off too before I could properly shut down, Oddly the files remain that were on the drive before the fix. I sure would like to know if the files added after the fix are recoverable now.

First thing first - STOP using your WD drive immediately! If you continue using the disk drive, you significantly increase the risk that the files you want to recover will be lost forever due to overwritten. Every new file or action will take up more "free space" and reduce your chances of retrieving your deleted files from WD. So really, you need to act quickly.

The next step - get a good Mac HDD data recovery software to retrieve the data as most as possible.

no power to unit itself, wondering if the transformer box can go after only a few months

it might be the outlet, try plugging in other appliances before jumping to conclusions about the nintendo itself. im assuming you probably tried this already though.

next it might be the power conditioner, the little box that the chord goes into from the outlet. it could be worn out.

or it could be a bad connection. id purchase a new power chord, personally. if thats not it, and the warranty isnt expired, send it back to the store, or to nintendo.
