Open the drive through My Computer and right click on any file folder hat you want to delete. Choose Properties. When that screen opens, uncheck the box next to Read Only, click Apply, then Ok. See if you can delete the folder. If that works, then you will have to do that for every folder/file that you want to delete.

Hi, I can't copy or paste any file with Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini because it always informs that "This disk is write-protected" Can you help me? Thanks a lot.


click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
click start click on my computer you should see your pen drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select format

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

My maxtor onetouch 4 mini 160gb didnot open help me


If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

You could have a look in My Computer to see if the drive is accessible there.

1.) If it is then I suggest you make sure you have copied the following files from the drive and saved them on PC (to be able to reinstall Maxtor Manager if you ever want also to format the drive) :-

- then uninstall and reinstall Maxtor Manager
(for some reason this program tends to become corrupt).

2.) If this none of this helps, you could download Seatools diagnostic and repair program from Seagate to see if the drive is ok or to try to repair it.

If this can be done on DOS mode environment why not try it. Delete some unimportant fies so that it can free some spaces. Then try to view it again in windows environment if this helps.

EMACHINE T1840 160GB HDD UPGRADE


The Safest thing to do is to actually create a 2nd partition
which will give you the full use of the 160gb
remember thou that windows sees a K as 1024
not the 1000 measurement you would expect
On older pcs there is a limitaion 137 then when formated bringing it down to 127gb
If me I would run the Maxtor setup and choose custom ,delete the partition already made, then create 2 partitions ,then tell it to copy from your old c:\ to the first partition,making new hdd the new boot drive
another option is go buy a ATA133 PCI card with 48 bit addressing
