Question about Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 160GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I have a 160GB external hard drive with a broken usb connection on the side of the hard drive and i cant transfer data between it and my PC with the cord provided,there is nothing wrong with the usb cord. Is there any other way to access the data on it without the cord? Ive opened the unit and there is 2 connections marked .DATA & POWER . How can i use these connections please explain?
The best thing to do is just take it to the technician,or the place you purchased it from. Do not try to fix it your self cos out of curiosity it would damage it further, unless you are a technician ofcourse. The problem you mentioned just needs a replacement of the USB slot which can be done by the technicians easily.

For most USB external HDD they usually are just HDD enclosures. If you are lucky you may be able to just open the case up and transfer te HDD into another HDD enclosure. Unforunaly I am not able to find mutch information about your drive so I dont know if you can do that or not. Other then that if your data ius very important that you can not replace and will cost thousands or millions or just irreplaceable sentmental value then I would recommend a backup data specilist. Drivesavers is what Sony use and recommend to their customers but very pricy.
