Question about Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition 120GB External USB 2.0 Portable 120 GB IDE Hard Drive
I just bought this drive last night along with a 4 port USB hub. I know both of them have internal software to run each one. I am not sure that either of the run software got installed to my laptop. Now when I connect them there is no prompt that comes up. It it a one time deal? What can I do to get the prompt to install the external hard drive software?? Please help me... I am not a computer whiz (obviously) so please speak in non-techi terms.
Go to the maxtor website and request the drivers. They will email a link for the download. Download and install.

If you install any application then uninstall it.
then restart the PC and reconnect it.
it will prompt for driver if it need.
many plug n play devices dont need a driver.
when it promp then select the location of the driver through wizard which will appear when you connect it.

If the computer doesn't recognize the drive you must:
first unplug new drive from computer and set on left side of keyboard.
second- reinstall windoes and any programs you had on the computer EXCEPT any audio or graphic-intensive programs- like photoshop or real player.
Reboot 7 times.
Switch drive over to RIGHT side of keyboard.
Reboot 1 (one) time.
your drive should now work perfectly.
