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.

Thanks for using FixYa!

What you need to do is to format your hard drive. Go to "My computer" right click the hard drive.. then select format. Do not use the quick format procedure. This should solve your problem.

Have a nice day.

My External Hard drive is not recognized and makes sound

Have you tried connecting your external to some other computer or OS, will the same problem occur?

Well, in thiscase the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software to see if you can find some data back. Recommend you have a try of Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!

Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.

Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.
