If you still have the driver disk then try to install it again. You may need to look for the driver online. You can also try a system restore. System restore is a function your computer has. You can find it in start menu/all programs/system tools

My computer crashed a few days ago and my one touch mini 4 was used to restore most of my files to my new computer. Before I start using my Maxtor mini4 on myu new computeer for back, do I need an...


Hi, the new computer should recognise the OneTouch and find the right drivers when you plug it in.

The SafetyDrill recovery CD does not have the drivers on it. It is just for use as a boot disc if you want to completely restore your PC with a SafetyDrill copy which has been made earlier.

There is no installation CD but the Maxtor Manager utilities, including SafetyDrill, were originally on the OneTouch drive itself and should still be there if you explore it. To install Manager click on the icon called 'Launch' (which is a green forward triangle/arrow with an orange square off centre on it)

The 'guides' file should still be on the drive too.

My maxtor one touch external is not being recognized by my pc. how can i solve my problem?


If you mean that Manager cannot recognise it but you can see it in My Computer, and if you have the Manager setup etc. progs saved, then try uninstalling Manager and reinstall it. If that does not work you could try Seatools or formatting the drive by right clicking it to get the option in My Computer. Regards Chas

Maxtor one touch 4 mini 250GB hard drive beeping


I had the same problem and the Maxtor/Seagate website did not have any solutions. I finally got in touch with Tech Support and got a fix. I was using it with a Dell tower and plugging into a USB port in the front. I also was using an after market cable.

I learned the Maxtor is a power hog and beeps and shuts down when it is not getting enough power. I did not know but the USB ports on the front of a desktop/tower computer do not provide as much power as a port on the back (the back ports are sometimes directly connected to the motherboard). I got a USB extension cable and connected it to a USB port in the back and it solved the problem.

I also learned that most laptop USB ports are not powerful enough to run the Maxtor. Mine would also not work if you attempt to share it by using an unpowered USB hub. I have gotten it to work with a powered desktop USB hub (Belkin).

I believe that this may explain why you get a "Y" cable with the drive. I could not find an explaination for the cable or how to use. There may be an accessory to purchase that attached to the cable and powers it.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini suddenly not recognised by any PC


I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you are describing a hard disk failure.

Maxtor, Hitachi and IBM disks have unusually high failure rates. I have replaced hundreds of these disks.

I recommend replacing with a Seagate or Western Digital disk.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

How do i find a usb adapter for my maxtor one touch 4 mini 120gb it broke?


You can buy a USB to USB mini cable at almost any store with PC accessories, even Walmart. Buy a high quality one since the drive is powered from the USB 2.0 port. Good Luck

Safety Drill using the Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini


The safety drill ONLY copies documents and email stuff. So the restoration process would only put back all the documents (and pictures) and email info. It should not interfere with the rest of your computer setup at all.

My Mac laptop running OS X 10.5.5 is not recognizing my Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini 320gb external drive. I plug it in, the light on the drive comes on, but nothing else happens.


check to make sure the drive is formatted to the FAT file system as NTFS file system is not recognised on Macs (check the drive on a PC and have the PC format the drive to the FAT file system)

Maxtor one touch 4 mini makes chirping sounds while trying to link up with the computer , does this for aprox a minute then stops , the conmputer dosnt see the drive.


Usualy this thing happens with my WD Elements drive when the cable is not connected properly or some dust went on the connector, try using a paintbrush and get rid of the dust, sometimes the usb cable's end is corrodated and that's why id doesn't work properly anymore, sometimes it connects and a bit later suddenly it dissapears, this case try another cable. And also a good idea to try out the drive on a different USB port.
If none of these works, try it on a different computer and see what happens there, if it's not working over there with any of these tricks than it's time to bring it back to the shop and use your warranty to get a new one.
