It often happens, just remove te power connection from te external disk and reconnect when the cpu is working, normally it will show your pictures again.Format is in my case not possible.

Since you want to format it, let's blow away the partition:

1. Right-click [My Computer]
2. [Manage]
3. Disk Management]
4. Find your Maxtor in the list or graph.
5. Once you are certain, then right-click the Maxtor entry (or graph) and select "Delete Partition"
6. Answer [Yes] to the next scary question.
7. If it has other partitions, you may want to examine them and delete them later.
8. You can now "New Partition" (right-click)
9. The create a "Primary" drive and format it.
*done*

Problem open up my maxtor one touch 500gb to retieve photos


first, recover your files. You will need to use hard drive deleted photo recovery program like Asoftech Photo Recovery, you can follow this video to recover deleted photo

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.
