Question about Maxtor OneTouch USB (A01B120) 120 GB Hard Drive
Hello, I have an Acer LapTop Pc running Windows XP SP2 and a Maxtor One Touch 120GB External HDD (DiamondMax Plus 9 ATA/ 133)
I havent used this Hard Drive in a few years and when I did it was set up on prior Desktop Systems. I attempted to set it up on my lap top yesterday and downloaded all of the software (6.0 which now has an update 1.1) I installed all, including Maxtor Software as well (of course) and when I plug the USB into the Acer LapTop, NOTHING happens, the Laptop is not recognizing the HDD, so initially assumed it was a faulty USB drive, but then when I opened the Maxtor Software on my Dektop it would have only 1 button available and that was the "Setup" Button, when I pushed it NOTHING happened, and in the Main Screen of the Maxtor set up Window, its asks you to select your drive to back up, etc. and it gave me no options, just blank. Which obviously now leads me to assume that the software is not communicating with my PC.
When I turn on the Power button of the HDD, the Blue light turns on so its getting Power, but when I plug in the USB my PC isnt even aware of new hardware being present.
My Maxtor Software is not communicating with my Laptop, no options available in display menu referencing my C: Drive or files, folders, etc.
Both Devices Manager and Disk Management do not reflect the External HDD is even present or available, totally un-acknowledged.
Please Help, thank you very much ahead of time
Check if the usb connector on the HDD is broken or separated from the ICB
