Question about Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition (R01E100) 100 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Unaccessible Drive I just got this external hard drive. When I plugged it in, everything loaded up on it's own. I needed to reimage my computer. I synced all the info i needed to the hard drive and had my computer reimaged. I plugged the hard drive back in after the reimage and it recognizes the hard drive, but won't autorun the launch.exe application on the drive. I can't view it on my computer and I haven't been able to locate a similar download on the internet to do the same job. Any suggestions?

I have seen this before and the result was becuase the encryption was activated on the device (a password set) and then the software was lost of the PC - in your case due to the reimaging. Manual installation of the software is required. It is available from: http://support.seagate.com/rightnow/mini_software/otiii_mini.exe

Try on any other computer first.
Download Hirens Boot. Place burned CD and reboot with it. Run Norton Ghost (bundled with Hirens Boot) and select USB option. Do a disk check.

The first error signals the fact that the partition data is corrupted. The second one signal an error in communication . Both put together signal the fact that your unit has died. You might have a slim chance that the actual disk inside it might have some life left in it: take it out, connect it directly to a desktop and try to access and extract all the files from it.

External hard drives are plug and play, the drivers are build into windows.
IF the hard drive was connected when your computed crashed, and the hard drive was in use, it may have damaged it.
If it does not automatically connect to other PC's looks like it has been damaged

Try using another USB cable or different port on your PC. It also may be that it needs external power, Check to see if its plugged in to the wall, if it is, it may be that you need a new power supply.

Go with a known good working hard drive, its the easiest thing to replace and instead of reimaging it, install windows from scratch and then load the drivers for whatever it doesnt find and then see how it runs, if the lockups stop happeneing then load the apps that you want and everything should be okay.

Will not load.


my old computer had a problem like this, i think the only way to fix a problem like this would be to reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system, which would delete everything on your hard drive...if you do not want to lose the files on your hard drive, you can hook up the hard drive to a different computer as a secondary drive and take the files you need off of it...then put the drive back in the original computer and reformat...after that just put back the files back on the original computer with a flash drive or an external hard drive...
cant think of another way to solve this
