Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Maxtor One-Touch III 750GB External Drive that has worked well for over a year. This past weekend the icon disappeared from my desktop and I can't get it back. I'm running a MaxOS X 10.5.5 OS and have tried everything that the Maxtor Suport Center has for OnLine help, to no avail. I'm using a Firewire connection and also tried a regular USB connection; neither one will see the drive. I've tested the USB ports and they work ok. There is a small light on the left front of the drive, it blinks at a steady rate on the left side only. I'm sure that means something, but sure what. I've checked the power supply to the drive and its ok. I've tried the Maxtor One-Touch Manager software, but it does see the drive. I do have Windows XP on the Mac if there's a better chance to fix the drive under Windows than Mac. HELP!!!!

Mine will also occasionally disappear. i have had to do a restart of the pc which gets it back for my 160 gb firewire external.
the blinking light may be indicative of the hdd going bad, though.

My computer cannot dectect my maxtor one touch III 320GB


well, 2 options, your hard drive is not working in that case, just get a internal hard drive which is serial and open the case for the maxtor and plug the drive inside the case. its cheaper to buy the inter hard drive, then to replace the external hard drive.

Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.


Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.

Maxtor One-Touch 4 750gb power light flashes and goes out straight away.


Try to remove the drive and connect it directly to another computer.
If still doesn't spin up then most likely the board has failed.
