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