Usualy this thing happens with my WD Elements drive when the cable is not connected properly or some dust went on the connector, try using a paintbrush and get rid of the dust, sometimes the usb cable's end is corrodated and that's why id doesn't work properly anymore, sometimes it connects and a bit later suddenly it dissapears, this case try another cable. And also a good idea to try out the drive on a different USB port.
If none of these works, try it on a different computer and see what happens there, if it's not working over there with any of these tricks than it's time to bring it back to the shop and use your warranty to get a new one.

Can't open Maxtor one touch 4 mini


If the external hard disks is plugged to a USB port and is not detected anymore, try uninstalling the USB Root Hub devices in the device manager. They will automatically be reinstalled on reboot and that can help fix detection issues.

But did you look in the Disk Management module of Windows to see if the disk is there? Right-click My Computer and select Manage.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini suddenly not recognised by any PC


I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you are describing a hard disk failure.

Maxtor, Hitachi and IBM disks have unusually high failure rates. I have replaced hundreds of these disks.

I recommend replacing with a Seagate or Western Digital disk.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Maxtor mini one touch 4


When you were in device manager did you notice if it was enabled? Did you try to force install the hardware somewhere else, or did you try to change what driver was used?

My Maxtor one touch mini 4 is not recognised on my pc. This has happened after my pc crashed and reconfigured.


If you still have the driver disk then try to install it again. You may need to look for the driver online. You can also try a system restore. System restore is a function your computer has. You can find it in start menu/all programs/system tools

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer


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 working.
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.

Check with Maxtor and see if this is covered under warranty. It should be.
