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

I cannot get the computer to recognise the Maxtor device. I had it working 18 mths ago and have now just reconnected it. Not sure if I have all things plugged in correctly but can't find a diagram of...


The correct lead should be Y shaped and two of the limbs plug into two USB sockets on the PC, the third lead has a small jack which goes into the OneTouch. It should light up if it is getting power from the USB and there should be an icon showing for it in My Computer.

Hi there i hav ea maxtor onetouch 4 mini 120 gb.


Remove the hard drive from the Maxtor case, purchase an USB hard drive adapter case, and install the hard drive inside this case. Then you can connect this to the computer's USB port and if the hard drive is OK then this computer will detect it as an external USB hard drive, then you can open the folders and files and back them up.

2 usb plugs which goes where??? maxtor 120gb external hardrive pn9nx2dc-500


You have what is call a USB POWER Y ADAPTER: this is designed to provide extra current to your USB HDD drive from a second PC USB port. Plug the end with two USB connectors to your PC/LAPTOP and the single-ended plug to your drive.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

Hi Josh!

I assume that you've tried plugging in both the red AND black cables? If that is true, and you're still having the issue, then: Good luck.

Maxtor has decided in all their wisdom to no longer offer the power supplies for this (generally cool) little drive. If your drive now fails to mount after updating to OSX.5 (I'm guessing you are a Mac user by your email addy), one solution would be to go to NewerTech and get one of their very sweet "Universal USB2.0 Drive Adapters" (about $19) and connect the bare drive (from WITHIN the Maxtor enclosure, yes, you'll have to take it apart) to your machine using the NewerTech device.
