Question about Maxtor One Touch III 500GB FireWire/USB2.0 External w/16M buffer Retail ****... 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I accidentally plugged in the wrong adapter into the device. Nothing special happened and it worked fine after I plugged the right adapter in. The day after, when I tried to plug it in, the little green light on the device flashed violently all the time and when I tried to plug it in on my computer, the computer didn't register it at all. A little later in the day I tried again and now nothing happens. I double and triple checked that everything is plugged in correctly and that the adapter is properly set, and everything seems fine, it just won't turn itself on. What happened and how do I fix it?
I believe what happened is that when the wrong adapter was connected it damaged some of the electronics inside. Specifically I would guess some filtering capacitors. You would need to open it to fix it. If you need the data I would think that the drive inside would still work so you could take it out and get the data off of it. Otherwise I would see about sending it back for warranty replacement.
