My Maxtor one touch external hard drive will not switch on

Hi,
I have a maxtor one touch III external harddrive160 GB it worked up until about 3 months ago. (i have only had it about 8) When my computer was out of action for a broken video card, that has since been fixed but my external hard drive won't turn on. The power lead (box thing) lights up and flickers but not the solid green colour that it use to be. So I am aussuming that it has something to with the power I have changed the power source, checked the cords are in properly and tried it on my laptop but it won't turn on. Can I buy a new power cord or fix this one? If not can I get everything that is on this hard drive off?
Thanks Heaps!!

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 computer cannot dectect my maxtor one touch III 320GB


well, 2 options, your hard drive is not working in that case, just get a internal hard drive which is serial and open the case for the maxtor and plug the drive inside the case. its cheaper to buy the inter hard drive, then to replace the external hard drive.
