Reseat cables to make sure the connection is solid and try connecting to a different usb port on the computer or try connecting it to a different computer. If you still can't see the drive after that, it's probably gone bad.

The Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition series ...i have a I/O device error and dont want to open...


If your external harddrive came with software, you may want to reinstall it. If not you may have to go the the website for the Maxtor One Touch 3 and download the driver for the unit.

You may also want to open the device manager and check to see if your usb port is having trouble. More than likely it is the driver itself>

4. Right click on your External drive and select create partition (primary partition).
5. After that you now you need to format the hard drive. Choose quick format.
6. Right click again on the partition you've just created, now select "Format" and select NTFS.
7. Click Ok and follow the wizard as it will guide you until it is finished.

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.

Maxtor one touch III 500g, got knocked over and now when its switched on it just beeps at me, and nothing appears to happen. I can't see any damage but it's certainly not working.


First things first;
hello
1) verify the connection
2) you have to change the Disk on another USB port 2.0
3) if you got warranty I suggest you change the device.** if apply.
good luck

Maxtor one touch iii not recognized


Does Windows recognize that there is anything plugged in at all?

If not it could be your USB interface (on the Maxtor) is shot.
