Just in case other users experience it, we can check and test the hard drive using:
1. Disk Management:
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management (please run as administrator; right click it), Disk Management. Is this hard drive info exist in this screen? If it is, then the hard drive is not dead.
2. Test and fix it using Norton Utilities (download and run it):

Have you tried restarting your Mac (with the Drive still connected)?

Otherwise try:

1. Disconnect the USB cable from your Mac.
2. Restart your Mac.
3. Reconnect the USB cable to a different USB port on your Mac (like the keyboard USB port for example).

See how you get on. Let me know. Regards,

Possibly, the USB is not receiving current enough and occasionally it resets the USB interface. Try connecting it to another system, or to a powered USB host, and see what happens.
Another possibility (but you'd need to disassemble the external enclosure and connect directly the disk inside to a SMART-capable motherboard) is that the hard disk is developing a fault.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini suddenly not recognised by any PC


I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you are describing a hard disk failure.

Maxtor, Hitachi and IBM disks have unusually high failure rates. I have replaced hundreds of these disks.

I recommend replacing with a Seagate or Western Digital disk.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Can't retreive any info from my maxator green


Good day sir/maam, I had the same problem with my generic external drive, keeps blinking but cant be recognized by the PC. chances are the Maxtor is done, you can salvage the Hard disk inside. Visit your dealer if its under warantee demand for a replacement they may also have service people to take a look at the drive. hope this helps

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

I have a Maxtor One-Touch III 750GB External Drive that has worked well for over a year. This past weekend the icon disappeared from my desktop and I can't get it back. I'm running a MaxOS X 10.5.5 OS...


mine will also occasionally disappear. i have had to do a restart of the pc which gets it back for my 160 gb firewire external.
the blinking light may be indicative of the hdd going bad, though.
