Tip & How-To about Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 160GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive

MAXTOR DRIVES: Vista and Win7 cannot see the drive

Seagate Troubleshooters
If OneTouch or other Maxtor (now Seagate) external drive does not appear in My Computer, this is the stage in the Troubleshooter at Seagate's website which could help, e.g. for Windows Vista or 7:-

There are links to other suggestions but if this does not reveal a solution, the drives have a five year guarantee and Seatools can be downloaded free to check the drive and warranty status from the serial number of the drive.

Seatools
There are clear instructons and the Seatools utility may be able to diagnose, repair, or format the drive to solve the problem.

Also, if OneTouch is faulty, the Seatools report code will be required to get it replaced:-
