The computer suddenly won't read my maxtor ex. hard drive anymore. What should I do?

If u are connecting it on the front usb
Try to connect at the rear usb. If it doesnot work then you have to check in device manager wheather the usb is disabled or not. If it is ok here then go to registry bu typing regedit in run window.

Go to HKLM---System-----Services-----usbstor

in that start value should be 3.

If it is 4 then change it to 3.

I installed from original CD and my computer running Vista does not find maxtor ll external HD. Is it compatable with Vista? why does it not find the drive?

Start "Device Manager".
Make sure that the USB devices are "ready" and "enabled".
Then, connect the external USB device.

Can you try the Maxtor external device in some *OTHER* notebook?
If it does not work, then the Maxtor device has a problem.

Drive won't mount

i had a maxtor one touch go bad and had to open the case and take it out of the external casing and put it into my computer as an internal drive. then it worked fine. it was a single drive.

just today i had a maxtor TB drive go bad, and since i think it has two drives inside it i am very worried that i will not be able to do the same thing.

Maxtor one Touch 300GB no steady green light


The USB Isn,t supplying/providing enough Power to the device.
Search e-bay or similar for a 2 into 1 USB Cable.
Then power the unit with 2 USB Ports on the Computer.
2 x USB Into 2 x Sockets On P.C. 1 x Into Device Drive.
This will be enough power to operate the Device Correctly.

I,ve done this on several external Drives, never failed for Me.

It appears it is not being recognized and mounted. Try running the add new hardware wizard if it isn't in your device manager already.
