Clicking sound from the hard drive means that the hard drive is not able to get to the boot track where the start up info is. The hard drive has a problem. If it is under warranty, call for service.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I have a Maxtor onetouch 4. I want to use it as an external hard drive. Windows explorer recognizes it but when I try to copy files to it, it says the drive is write protected. I down loaded the Maxtor...


That's because the software it comes with unlocks the drive to do backups. You should be able to format the drive in windows and then it should work fine for your purposes.
Right Click the Drive, Select Format, give it a volume name if you want and select quick format. Leave everything else default.

I need the software to get into my Maxtor one touch 4 plus


Hello,

all of the documentation and downloads for this product are now available via Seagate, as Maxtor was acquired. They are still supporting all the drives Maxtor produced for the normal periods of time.

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


Right Click on My Computer, click on Manage, go to Disk Managment, if the drive is available you will see it there. Check to see if it has a drive letter assigned to it, if not right click on it and choose Change Drive letters. Make sure you are on the external drive though, you don't want to change your C drive accidentally. It should pop up in My Computer.

Maxtor External Harddrive


Seagte purchased Maxtor in 2006. They kept the group that supported these products intact. Check Seagate's support site for specific information and/or contact Seagate's support group. They should be able to help you. The website is: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/ As a last resort, you can get a free replacement from Seagate via their warranty repair group. They track via serial numbers, so no receipts should be needed.
