Question about Maxtor 160GB OneTouch III Mini USB 2.0 External 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Maxtor OneTouch III 160GB Mini

I had a new Pioneer stereo for the car fitted as a christmas present. It has a USB port for various devices. Thumb drives, Ipod's, Zens, and other portable music players.

However, it wont play anything off the Maxtor. It won't play because there is not enough power. I am trying to find out if there is anybody else out there who has managed to connect the Maxtor listed above to any car stereo.

Because the Maxtor has two USB cables for power usage, i was hoping that one USB cable could be connected to the stereo, with the other power USB cable connected to some kind of adaptor that connects through the cigarette lighter.

Thx for any help on this matter.

    Sorry stupid question here - does 120 cord, mean AC 120V power cord. If so, then no. The Maxtor Minis come with twin power USB only. There is a AC power adaptor available for the all mini maxtors, but are not sold with the drive. I guess thats why they sell the drive cheap.

Does the Maxtor have a 120 cord? If so how about using a converter? They are about 20-30 dollars and connect to the 12 v system of the car and can be placed anywhere.

Connect it to any USB port on your computer.
Windows will assign a "drive-letter" (not A:, not C:, and probably not D:) to the drive.
Then, open "My Computer", and double-click on that drive-letter.
