Maxtor 120 gb harddrive cant read it on older home pc


You indicated that you have 2x achieved connectivity on the home pc. This is a good indication of a problem with the USB port. You may want to acquire a USB card for the motherboard. This alternative access to the computer could solve the problem. Cost for a replacement card can be as low as $20. Use a screwdriver to open the case, install the card and go.

Maxtor One Touch 4 is beeping when I connect it by usb


Does the HDD spinup?
My slightly educated guess... the Ext 2.5in HDD requires more power than it is getting from the single port.

1. Try another port
2. Try it on another computer (all USB ports do not provide 250ma to a load)You may be sharing this avail voltage with all plugged in devices and will have to pull 1-2 others to get the HDD online. Since STARTUP current is high, the HDD pulls all it can from the ports (logical) then settles down and uses 1/3 to keep spinning. After the HDD is up and online, try plugging the other USB devices back in, 1 at a time. If it stalls the HDD - you know the why
3. Take it back and find something a bit less power-hungry (Like Hitichi or Toshiba)

Connecting a maxtor one touch 111 60GB mini edition to a computer using MS windos 98SE


The maxtor is a usb2.0 device. Given that you are using Win98 I would guess that the computer is fairly old. It probably doesn't have usb2.0 ports. Also Win98 had very poor support for usb - even in SE. There may be a software solution out there and you may be able to get a usb2.0 card but.......
good luck wimancec

I have Windows 98 and I need to download drivers for my USB DRIVE HOW AND WHERE CAN i DOWNLOAD


First you need win98SE (the Second Edition), still not sure that it will work I guess you try to conect a USB 2.0 device, I think that it will be better if you buy a 4 port USB 2.0 PCI card, install in an empty mainboard slot then install the USB drivers that come with the card and connect the device, be sure to ask the dealer for compatibility before you buy.

USB CONNECT ONE FOR POWER+DATA ? AND THE OTHER POWER ONLY?


It sounds like your USB ports just aren't putting out enough power for this device. Did the drive come with an external power supply? If so, does it work when you use the external power supply?
