MAxtor hard drive wont connect

I have formatted the hard drive previously and set up to back up daily at 10pm. However, I cannot get my computer to see it now.
I have powered it down, but no help.
Any ideas?

Is the hard drive detected by the BIOS?
you can verify if your hard drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your lacie. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just partition and format it again from here and it will appear in your my computer.

Would like to erase 150gb maxtor external drive and start over


Connect the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the Maxtor.
Click FORMAT.
Choose Quick-Format.
When it completes (in a few seconds), all the files on the disk will be "gone",
because a "blank" Table-Of-Contents has replaced the previous Table-Of-Contents.

Maxtor 80 gb portable hard drive copying problem


Unless the data on the maxtor is very important You should format the drive, assuming you are using windows, go to my computer, right click on the drive, it should show the option to format. If the info is very important, my advice take it to a info recovery business.

Insert the drive into the bay and connect power and ribbon cable.

Right click on the drive, click Mark Partition as Active then Format.

In this day and age, it's always best to format to NTFS file system.

How to Connect Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 320Gb to PC


I have one as well running along with a PC. PCs and Macs are formatted differently. Go to www.maxtor.com and create a search for reformatting from a Mac to a PC with your Operating System in the search as well. Should have no problems after doing that. It will tell you and or show you where and how to reformat.

Problem open up my maxtor one touch 500gb to retieve photos


first, recover your files. You will need to use hard drive deleted photo recovery program like Asoftech Photo Recovery, you can follow this video to recover deleted photo

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.
