Maxtor basics 500GB external hard drive not working

Every time you turn your computer on it is going to "spin up" and the light is going to come on. Just because the light goes out and it idles so that you can't hear it anymore doesn't mean it isn't still on. It is. You can verify this by using windows explorer to view it and its files.

I accidentally remove my "LaunchU3"

Are you sure you can't access it anymore?

LaunchU3 is only a quick launch program that comes with Cruzer flash drives. Even if the program is deleted, you should still be able to access your other files. Just go to Start -> Computer and your flash drive should be listed next to your hard drive.

If that doesn't work, then perhaps you deleted other files along with LaunchU3. In that case, you will have to use data recovery software to un-delete the files.

I m using a Maxtor One Touch and since I m using a new computer I can't access my information anymore. Do I need a new software installed.

If the system you are using is a different operating system then the original, then that may be the issue.
If it is a Mac Journaled formatted hard drive, it would not show up in the Windows OS. In which you would have to do some transfer of your hard drive contents in a MAC OS to a drive readable by both. Or place them on network accessible location and copy it to your Windows Hard drive

Maxtor (160GB) is not finishing the processing when i turn Time Machine on. it just keeps going and although i have left it all night, it still won't complete. i have now trashed (which took forever)...

more then likely the computer was turned off during an operation and corupted the booting sector after wiping out everything depending which OS you are using you could reinstall or repair (this all depends on the OS)

Maxtor external harddisk recognition problem by pc

Hi Maxtarm,

It sounds like either the drive or enclosure is failing rather quickly.

The first and cheaper solution is to take the drive to your local computer shop and have the techs there move the harddrive into a new enclosure and test it. If it works in the new enclosure, you're done, but please take my advise and never rely on a single copy of your files. Always keep your important files in 2 or more places, on your computers hard drive, external drive and a backup to CD's or DVD's you can store in a firesafe or friends home is a good idea.

Now assuming that change of enclosures doesn't work, you will need the help of a recovery pro to get your files back. If that is the case comment back here with your location (Country, state, city) and I will advise you on a reputable recovery provider in your location.

Hope this helps Fixya,

Hello, I was accessing data on my Maxtor One Touch II when it froze suddenly. Couldn't access data anymore and not even close programme. I shut down the computer and when I now plugg it in, the computer...

I had this same thing happen to mine. I took the drive out and hooked it up directly to my computer. It was gone and there was no hope for it.If you can do this, it is what I would suggest. They have generic drives in them that will fit most any computer cables. When I did it, my computer would not find it. Those drives, I found out, were notorious for this. Hope this helps.
