Question about Acomdata (HD250UE5-72) (HD250UE572) 250 GB Hard Drive

2 Answers

Maxtor 300 GB won't turn on.

What should I do at this point? My "Maxtor One Touch II" will not turn on. It just stopped working today. Any way to get my info off of there or save this one? I pulled it away from my computer desk to plug in elsewhere: The cord is getting power (the green light on the cord turns on) but when I click on the Hard Drive: Nothing. No lights, no nothing. Any ideas? -Dave

    I have the same problem with my Maxtor One Touch III. One day I went to turn it on but it did not turn on at all. I have had the power cord tested and it is OK. The drive itself has suddenly got head. I can't even open up the drive. Has anyone found a solution, or at least, how the data can be taken out. Any help would be appreciated.

The enclosure has failed. if you need the content from the drive, extract it and place it into a more stable enclosure. if not, return the drive to Maxtor for a replacement. This is normal for Lacie and Maxtor drives...cheaper enclosures offer cheap performance and reliability.

Keep me posted.

Maxtor One Touch II - installation Software

I have a disk that worked for me and I am running windows xp. I also have the website address that is supposed to have the 98 drivers which could work perhaps.

Guess you could try them first and if that doesnt work I could perhaps make a backup of the disk/package/mail/ worth anything?

I have a maxtor icon with a lock on it. I click on "unlock" and nothing works i have maxtor one touch II 300 GB, i'm using windows XP SP3 my maxtor is locked. It is only recognized on my computer under...

Have you tried right clicking on the drive and going into properties. Click on security option and make sure that all the permissions for the drive are active with the exception of special permissions. Also look at the advanced security settings and make sure that you have full control permissions. Hope this helps.
