SOURCE: maxtor external hard drive is not accessable

- Do you hear any beep sound when you plug in the USB drive into the laptop? - You can also try a different USB cable - Try connecting the hard drive to a different computer and see if it works All those steps will help you determine where the issue is. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck

SOURCE: Bought NEW MAXTOR ONETOUCH III (No software included???)

If you look at the site carefully you will see a small asterisk near the bottom that says * Windows2000/XP compatible. This seems to apply to several of the available downloads.

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

Have you checked that your External HD get enough power? 
My Maxtor Onetouch 4 mini came with a cable with two USB plugs. It works fine with one plug in my Macbook, but requires both two to work in older PowerBook G4. 
This is probably because older Mac is not feeding enough amps to USB output.
Or then there is something else wrong.

Hmmm What software do you need?
You should not need software to run the HDD. Just plug it in.
You can get the One Touch software from Seagate (who no own Maxtor) See

SOURCE: 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.

The One touch software screen isn't appearing when I load


Hi.

You said 'when I load' so I hope this is note is relevant but I don't find the OneTouch (Maxtor Manager) software appears when the drive is plugged in either, so I think this is normal.

You should look for an icon (a capital M within a blue disc) for Maxtor Manager in the taskbar, at the bottom right of the PC's screen.

Please try right clicking on this icon (capital M), which should bring up a window with Maxtor Manager at the top.

Then click on the text 'Maxtor Manager' to open the program's window.

Hope this is what you wanted.

My Maxtor one touch has stopped being picked up by my computer when plugged in. When power source is plugged in led light (white) just blinks and never turns solid


You said it has stopped being picked up when plugged in so I hope this is note is relevantbut I don't think it is abnormal for it just to blink.

If the OneTouch does not appear in My Computer or cannot befound by Maxtor Manager, right click on My Computer icon and select Properties,Device Manager, Disc drives, and expand Disc Drives.

There may be ayellow overlay over Maxtor drive, to show it has a problem, so right click onit and select 'Choose drivers for this device' to reinstall them.

Without goingonline they seem to be found and reinstalled from somewhere locally on the PC and I hope this willdo the trick.
Also in case this helps, I don't find the OneTouch (Maxtor Manager) software appears when the driveis plugged in, so I think this is normal too.

You should look for an icon (a capital M within a blue disc) for Maxtor Managerin the taskbar, at the bottom right of the PC's screen.

Right clicking on this icon, (capital M), should bring up awindow with Maxtor Manager at the top.

Then click on the text 'Maxtor Manager' to open the program's window.

Hope this is what you wanted.

Maxtor OneTouch III, USB 2.0 (500GB) not found


yes someone can get the information off the drive it will cost but yes it all depends how much you value the information thats on the drive that you would want to do this it could just be the controler card on the drive or the onetouch's controler went bad if you know someone who can open the unit up for you (maxtor is no longer anyway) have then open the case and plug it into your computer and see if it will work as a internal drive

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.

Computer is not detecting my maxtor onetouch III


the hard disk interface could be broken, open the hard disk case and use it as an internal hard disk as a slave in a computer to save your data

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

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.
