Question about Computers & Internet
My Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer and the setup doesnt initiate. i have the one touch 4 mini 120 gb and it wont show on my PC,and yes,maxtor (seagate)won't give me any solutions
I have a
Onetouch Mini 4, operating fine on two computers with Windows XP but
couldn't get it working on Windows 7. I plugged it in and it would be
recognized but a message would come up saying there were errors and to
scan. Tried scanning and not scanning and couldn't get the drive to
work. If I tried to open it would give me the "access denied". I
couldn't get to a security tab from a folder as none of them were
It ended up that I wasn't listed as an owner nor had any permissions so I needed to be added to the device.
Here is what I did -
System, device manager, disk drives, right click on onetouch, properties, volumes, populate, the select on touch volume, properties, security, advanced, change permissions, add, typed in my user name - hit checked names (it fixed the format), then hit ok.
Then make sure you set the permissions for all the users.
