Re: maxtor 3200 /160gb

According to this, the device only supports Windows 2000, XP Pro and XP Home (and presumably, Vista as well).

I have had a Maxtor OneTouch A01B120 120GB Hard Drive in storage for some time. I now use a new-ish HP laptop with Windows Vista. Can I use this Maxtor Hard Drive to back up my files or won't it work...

When you plug the unit into the Vista machine, it should appear on the drive list immediately. From there you can copy files manually or use any backup software.
If you wish to use the backup software, the latest version can be downloaded from the Seagate site.

My Maxtor 3200 possibly has failed. The green light does not come on and my computer no longer shows it connector asa ext HD. Any recommendations.

I agree that it has failed.

Get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive (by opening the enclosure) and use the "check warranty status" utility on Maxtor's web-site, to see if the warranty still is valid. If it is, Maxtor will repair/replace the unit, at minimal cost to you.

Win98 does not recognize the Maxtor OneTouch III 500Gig.

First I will want you to know that support for win98 has long reached end of life. I don't think that win98 support mass storage unit of that capacity. I will suggest you opgrade your os to winXP

option 01. try the unit on another windows pc. if its the same. i am afraid you might have an issue with the device.

option 2 . you could remover the **** from the enclosure & fix it directly to the pc so that you can retrive the data. however this will have an impact on your warranty

Need flash drive for my Windows 98SE

if it's a sandisk cruiser micro U3 2Gig flash stick God help you.

windows 98 se had serious USB issues and lack of support of any kind for USB 2.0

USB 2.0 can be done ONLY if you have USB 2.0 ports ( chip )

and ONLY if you have loaded XP professional 2002 WITH service pack 2 ,,, it's time to slap these vendors around for lying and lying about USB 2.0

the bright side is , it's not broken , more than likely an XP pro 2002 with service pack 2 will see the stick right off the bat

if that happens , then you know it's the fault of the computer that can't see the durn thing.

it's time to slap sandisk up side the head for lack of clear cut documentation on this issue.

for example my vista machine can't see mine anymore but my XP professional 2002 with service pack 2 sure the heck can.

that just goes to show you vista is stupid and so was windows 98 and aren't we all tired of this ****.

My pc dose not come up my maxtor basics external desktop hard drive

What OS are you using? Windows 98SE does not always recognize exterrnal hard drives. Try the external HD on a computer running Windows XP and see if that works. If it works on WinXP and not Win98SE or possibly WinME the External HD is good.
