This unit didn't come with software on a CD it was all on the hard drive. Unfortunately the biggest problem I've seen with this drive is that they will go bad because of the heat buildup inside the unit. Chances are your unit has died, that's why you can't see it on your screen. If there's unrecoverable data on it then a good data recovery service can get it off. I've rarely heard of the platters going bad.

Can't read HD-- I/O error


"Joecolvette" has probably got it right, I've seen this before. The HDD enclosure circuit board has a fault. Can be resolved by replacing the enclosure. Plenty on ebay, just ensure you buy one with the correct HDD interface (Sata or IDE).

Alternatively, if you have a tower with a spare port, you could take the HDD out of the caddy, install it in the tower as a "Slave" (check jumper settings) ensuring the system drive is set to "Master". Then you can check whether the HDD itself is at fault.

You can try and restore your partition using Testdisk its free http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

If that does not work you probably have a damaged drive and will need data recovery. This guy is good and works off of donations. http://FreeDataRecovery.us

I have had a Maxtor OneTouch A01B120 120GB Hard Drive in storage for some time. I now use a new-ish HP laptop with Windows Vista. Can I use this Maxtor Hard Drive to back up my files or won't it work...


When you plug the unit into the Vista machine, it should appear on the drive list immediately. From there you can copy files manually or use any backup software.
If you wish to use the backup software, the latest version can be downloaded from the Seagate site.

I have a maxtor one touch mini and does not pop up on my screen, what can I do ? i need all file inside


Hello,
Install it another computer which is running well.If your Hdd run well in that computer ,change the USB cable .If the HDD can not run in another pc you think, you have lost data.Because that Hdd cant run any more.
If the problem is same.
follow the step
R_click on my computer>Properties>Hardware>Device manager>uninstall all the usb ,one after one .
After UN install all the usb restart your PC .
If the problem same as before ,
Insert your OS in the cd tray > press Win key + R>type sfc /scannow(please take a space between sfc and front slash)>hit enter .Again you will restart the PC.

Hope it will help you.

I have forgotten my password to access my Maxtor One Touch 120GB


Google for Hiren's bootdisk, burn it and boot with it. Or, it's the password for windows you have forgotten, right ?
