Question about Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition (C01W010) 1 TB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive

1 Answer

All of a sudden my maxtor one touch III turbo does not show up on my pc--tried on another pc-not seen--then tried it on my laptop--it was found and i backed up about 80%--then my laptop gave error message--cant find file. restarted and for the last day still cant get into the drive. at one point i was able to run a diag on the maxtor software and it gave me error 68CBDB48--Maxtor tells me thats the code to return it to them-maybe defective. but i must get the last 20% off the drive. any suggestions appreciated. what i dont get is why i was able to access it for awile-now i cant. all i need is a few minutes on it then i trash the drive. its only a couple years old which isnt cool. thanks

Sounds like HDD is failing, try downloading free recovery software from a freeware site...
Don't hold your breath though, it may not recover.
good luck !

SOURCE: re-partition external HD for windows and mac

Back up all the data on the disk to your Mac. Plug the disk into your Windows computer and format it with a FAT32 filesystem. Both Mac and Windows can use FAT32. Do not format as NTFS.

if you go to the Maxtor driver page for Vista drivers for this product, scroll to the last one, and it says it cnn be used for Vista AND for other OS where the original driver (on the mini drive) has been eradicated! a 256MB download = downloading at the moment and will let you know if it works!

SOURCE: Bought NEW MAXTOR ONETOUCH III (No software included???)

If you look at the site carefully you will see a small asterisk near the bottom that says * Windows2000/XP compatible. This seems to apply to several of the available downloads.

My Maxtor Turbo III 500MB drive connected to my PC won't open anymore. I hear a periodic clicking sound from within. Help PLease.


Unfortunately, that's what is called the 'click of death' - the hard drive is trying to recalibrate, and failing. It might be possible to read the disk, but it takes specialized equipment and it's not cheap. You need to find a "data recovery service" near you.

Maxtor One-Touch 4 750gb power light flashes and goes out straight away.


Try to remove the drive and connect it directly to another computer.
If still doesn't spin up then most likely the board has failed.

Try it in another computer if you have one. Or...try it in another USB port on your desktop PC. I would see if it appears in the device manager. If so, and you don't get a drive letter, try running
'diskmgmt.msc' and looking to see if the drive pops up under available drives.

Download and run maxtor powermax, when you run the program it will idenify your hard drives, select your one touch and run the recertify, this will not erase anything but will run a complete diagnostic and attempt recovery of data to recertify as good. If the drive fails I have recovery software I can e-mail you.
