Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would have to be determined if the Maxtor One Touch is the one really with issue or is it the USB port of the laptop. Pls try to connect a USB device such as a digicam, flash/thumbdrivee to the USB port of the laptop. Check if the laptop can recognize, access and read/write to that USB device. If yes, then the laptop's USB port(s) is generally OK, and the Maxtor One Touch is indeed the one in question. If not, then it is the USB port of the laptop that has to be attended to.

Pls post back your Operating System.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Plut it to another usb port, try a few times, try diffrent usb ports if that doesn't work turn the laptop completely off unplug and remove battery for 2 minutes. Plug in the ac and the hard drive turn the laptop on it should detect it.

this is just a start so report back with results.

Return or contact Maxtor. For a fee they have the equipment and processes (that are proprietary) to retrieve your data. Do not restore the HD because it will erase ALL information!

How to watch DVD on iPod touch 3G?


It is great that Apple's new iPod Touch 3G can hold up to 80 hours video, but as we all know, DVD files cannot be played on iPod, because all the iPod devices do not support DVD format. You can only enjoy the high quality DVD movie under the premise of owning a DVD player. But if you want to watch the DVD movies on portable devices like iPod touch, you need an application which enables you to convert DVD to video formats, for example, mp4, mov, m4v etc.

In fact, there are dozens of third party solutions that will enable you to convert DVD to iPod. Some of them can work perfectly, while some may not. After trial experiences, I may introduce a powerful DVD to iPod Ripper for you.

Wondershare DVD to iPod Ripper is an efficient application which will fulfill all your desire and requirements with its excellent performance - super quick conversion duration and excellent audio/video quality. You can enjoy the high quality movies in your iPod as if you were watching in DVD Player.

Key feature:
1. Convert/rip DVD movies to iPod supported video formats (MPEG-4/MP4)
2. Optimize DVD video to iPod supported video resolution, perfectly fit your iPod screen
3. Extract music from DVD to iPod MP3, M4A and AAC
4. Edit DVD video (like trim, crop, add watermark and more)
5. Convert DVD to iPod Touch 3G and Convert DVD to iPod Nano 5G with camera
6. Support all iPod models (including iPod OS 3.1)
7. Support Windows 7


Here is the step by step tutorial showing you how to transfer DVD movie to Apple iPod Touch, of course iPod Classic serial and Nano serial are also compatible.

Please download Wondershare New iPod Touch Converter, install and launch it. And follow the steps below you will convert your favorite DVD movies to iPod Touch MP4 video with only 3 steps.



Step 1: Add DVD movies
Click "Add" you can load DVD files from DVD Rom/Folder(data DVD)/IFO/ISO files respectively.

Step 2: Select MP4 as output formats
Then you can select MP4 as output formats from the categorized output formats listed in "Profile" drop-down list. This iPod Touch DVD Ripper also allows you to convert DVD to iPod Classic/video/shuffle/nano. You can select the corresponding format.

Step 3: Start conversion
After selecting the output format, you can start conversion by clicking "Start" button, and all the tasks will be done at high speed and fabulous quality.

Tip: You can check the option to select "shut down computer when conversion completed".
The whole process is as easy as ABC, and then you can transfer the video file to your new iPod Shuffle. Hope you enjoy it.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini 250GB hard drive beeping


I had the same problem and the Maxtor/Seagate website did not have any solutions. I finally got in touch with Tech Support and got a fix. I was using it with a Dell tower and plugging into a USB port in the front. I also was using an after market cable.

I learned the Maxtor is a power hog and beeps and shuts down when it is not getting enough power. I did not know but the USB ports on the front of a desktop/tower computer do not provide as much power as a port on the back (the back ports are sometimes directly connected to the motherboard). I got a USB extension cable and connected it to a USB port in the back and it solved the problem.

I also learned that most laptop USB ports are not powerful enough to run the Maxtor. Mine would also not work if you attempt to share it by using an unpowered USB hub. I have gotten it to work with a powered desktop USB hub (Belkin).

I believe that this may explain why you get a "Y" cable with the drive. I could not find an explaination for the cable or how to use. There may be an accessory to purchase that attached to the cable and powers it.

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
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNxApz_PBW8

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.

Screen not responding


can you hear any boot sounds?
(fan noise, harddisk rattling)
do the LEDs work (battery and charger , Hdd, CD/DVD-ROM-drive,WLAN)?
this would indicate it still boots up, but screen might be broke.

u lucky?
- remove battery pack! retry booting

if not, hook it up to another external monitor
(use vga-jack in the back of it)
reboot, wait for signal

- check if the the fan is jammed
(due to sand???)
this might cause overheat problem -
use compressed air to blow/clean the fan inlet

still no luck? it simply may be broke...

Have you tried right clicking on the drive and going into properties. Click on security option and make sure that all the permissions for the drive are active with the exception of special permissions. Also look at the advanced security settings and make sure that you have full control permissions. Hope this helps.
