Question about Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition 120GB External USB 2.0 Portable 120 GB IDE Hard Drive
I had to have my computer fixed about a month ago and now I cannot use my maxtor to backup. Apparently I might have part of the software missing. I have gone on to the maxtor downloads but they only have downloads for vista and I have windows xp. There seems to be no way around this problem. It is annoying not having a disk with the software on as with usual products.
Just called Seagate....they said you can download and use the One Touch 4 lite software and it will work perfectly... see link below:

Just called Seagate/Maxtor for this exact problem. You need to call Seagate to get the software.
Here is the issue: The Maxtor One Touch has encryption software that is export controlled. Because of this, they cannot post the software on the web. The Vista "drivers" they post on the web only update your existing/installed software to the Vista operating system - it does not include the encryption engine.
When you call Seagate, they will verify the serial number, they will take your phone and email and send you the software.

Software downloads are available from the Seagate support site. Here is
a link to the download page for Maxtor OneTouch III family. It should provide the latest version of all software that came with the new unit, including "Updated software to run in Windows Vista. Also can be used in case the
original software that was preloaded on the drive has been erased."
Hope it helps!
