Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the drive. Maxtor doesn't have any updates availble because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

My maxtor one touch iii mini will not start on my new windows 7 computer


To solve this problem:

1. Go to "Control Panel > ... >Disk Management", find your drive there (it will have no letter assigned), right click, choose to assign letter, assign one, DONE.

2. Just for the case, the Maxtor "Software" everyone is talking here of is [currently] at http://www.seagate.com/support/sof [...] us_GM7.exe (thats the link my Maxtor Manager used when trying to update itself [unsuccessfully, hehe], so one can "intercept" it just looking at the error message (as I did), or, probably, with treh help of firewall logs).

Hope this helps,

If your external harddrive came with software, you may want to reinstall it. If not you may have to go the the website for the Maxtor One Touch 3 and download the driver for the unit.

You may also want to open the device manager and check to see if your usb port is having trouble. More than likely it is the driver itself>

My windows 7 does not recognize my maxtor hard drive. any ideas. thanks len


I have a Maxtor One Touch III Mini, 60 GB hard drive and I had the same problem with Windows 7. It recognized my drive to do a Windows Easy Transfer from my old computer to my new one, but it didn't recognize the software. I was not able to open files on the drive or download to it for a back up. I just did a "chat" with Maxtor/Seagate tech support, and they told me I could download Seagate Manager software for the Free Agent series, and that would work. They advised me to go to www.support.seagate.com/support/certificate.html
They gave me a certificate validation code, which was only valid for a short time, and that brought me to the Seagate Manager Installer. I downloaded it a few minutes ago, and it works fine and is compatible with Windows 7. My drive works again.

I suggest anyone having a problem contact Maxtor/Seagate via chat or e-mail (there is a charge for telephone tech support) and tell them your issue. They were able to help me. By the way, their forums and tech support Q&A's did not help me. I had to contact someone to get what I needed.

New installation yesterday and resulting confusion


I've solved the problem (no thanks to FixYa, which appears to only want more of my money) by concluding that I have no problem, since I can live with a red icon that tells me my backup failed when in fact windows explorer tells me that my 160GB Maxtor One Touch III Mini Edition has backed up my whole system successfully, and I've been able to access files and sxtart programs in my g: drive, where the backup is stored. I figure it is showing red because I've turned off the feature which does scheduled backups on a calendar, as I prefer to backup on my own irregular schedule.

I only wish that Maxtor would have provided more information in the box to connect me with an online tutorial so that I wouldn't have to reach these conclusions on my own or pay someone to tell me what ought to be available for free, after all.

MAXTOR ONE TOUCH 4 MINI


Try it in another computer if you have one. Or...try it in another USB port on your desktop PC. I would see if it appears in the device manager. If so, and you don't get a drive letter, try running
'diskmgmt.msc' and looking to see if the drive pops up under available drives.

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


Tell Rey Barcelo that the Installation software is on the hard disk
inside of his Maxtor OT Mini III 80 GB. There is no physical CD.
It's all on the hard drive inside of the device. I had my computer
expert look at it and now the device is working normally.
A lot of Kudos to you for steering me in that direction.
