I've had this problem before (something similar) you'll need additional software from Maxtor.com so you're PC will recognize the new drive.

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.

I changed my windows to vista and then i tried to re-install my maxtor one Touch 4 mini 250 GB but the computer can not recognize it, so plz tell me what is the steps to re-install thx


By 'install' I think you mean install Maxtor Manager, but perhaps you have files which were saved by 'drag-and-drop' with the previous OS. These might be recovered the same way, even in Vista, if you can open the OneTouch from Control Panel. To use Manager with the OneTouch which had stuff saved via Manager with a different OS, you could first try to recover the files with Manager installed on another PC using the old OS version. Then format the OneTouch through Control Panel in Vista and with luck Manager will recognise it. If it does not, and you can see the drive in My Computer, then uninstall Manager (which might be corrupt) and try re-installing it. Regards Chas

When ever I plug in my maxtor onetouch 4 mini my computer doesn't see it so it doesn't come up. I was able to access my files before but it doesn't now...How do I get to my files again?


Reboot the computer and plug the HD to the USB port again after the computer settles. Have Windows discover the device to install the driver and wait until it tells you that it is now available to use.

My maxtor onetouch 4 mini 160gb didnot open help me


If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

Driver does not install atomatically


With the computer off, plug the unit in to the computer and turn it on.

Now start the computer, there is no driver to install manually, windows
uses generic drivers to detect plug n play devise's.

Out of hundreds of computers, the only time I have not seen a hard
drive detected was because the hard drive was bad, and the others
where hacked versions of windows, called lite xp, or the chipset drivers
where not loaded because someone just installed windows but nothing else.

You can look through your bios for plug n play, but its probably set to auto.

Most external HD's take a while to be detected from 10 seconds up to a few minutes.

If the driver does not install automatically, what driver are you installing
that you get it to work ??????????????????????????

Install driver of maxtor 160gb onetouch 4 mini


Hmmm What software do you need?
You should not need software to run the HDD. Just plug it in.
You can get the One Touch software from Seagate (who no own Maxtor) See
