I'd recommend that you use hard drive data recovery program to scan the hard drive and get back your files.

My Maxtor One Touch III external hard disk has suddenly stopped getting recognized on my laptop. I am using a Windows XP, SP 2 OS. The system is unable to recognize the USB device. Can someone please help?


Check power of HDD, that problem can usually manifest because some of your usb ports can't send enough Volts to your device, restart your machine, check connections, and it should work again as charm :)))


Please rate my solution, thank you :)

The computer doesn't recognize anymore


Hello.

Go to Maxtor's website. Download and install the driver for your specific model and operating system.

Then, see if your computer sees the drive when you connect it.

If not, there could be a problem with the drive's USB cable or the drive itself.

Also, be certain that your computer's USB ports are OK.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

My maxtor one touch iii is being recongized on the USB port the driver shows its good and everything shows its working properly, but I don't hear the drive spinning and when Windows XP recognizes the drive...


reseat cables to make sure the connection is solid and try connecting to a different usb port on the computer or try connecting it to a different computer. If you still can't see the drive after that, it's probably gone bad.

Light turns on but My Computer does not recognize the drive


Sounds like you lost the drivers for your external. W/ out an online PC you cannot download them either. Do you have a friend that could do this on their PC? That is the only way.

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.

Maxtor III 500 GB external hard drive is no longer recognized by computer. No driver installed ???


Drivers are not necessary for hard drives - as long as your computer recognized it when you first installed it, you're all set. It sounds like your hard drive has failed, or become disconnected. Check the connections for IDE or SATA, and power. If they're both connected properly, listen when you power up the computer to hear if that particular hard drive spins up. If it doesn't, it might be dead.
If you have access to another computer, try installing the drive into it temporarily and see if it is recognized in that computer. If the drive has failed, you might be able to get it replaced by Maxtor if it's still under warranty. Unfortunately they will not recover any data on the drive for you; you must pay a data recovery specialist to recover any data on the drive, and this is expensive, so only do this if it's extremely important data.
