Question about Maxtor OneTouch II external hard drive 300GB 7,200 RPM - FireWire & USB (E04W300)

1 Answer

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor

Several years ago I used a Maxtor One Touch II, 200GB. I used it with my IBM thinkpad. I have a Dell now and haven't used this Maxtor in about 18 months. I have a new one hooked up to my Dell.

I need to access some information on my old Maxtor. I downloaded the closest Maxtor drivers I could find and it seemed to help. When I go the Manager it actually shows the F:Drive now but when I try to 'restore' it doesn't find any data. When I go out under "My Computer" I can see restore points in the file but for some reason my old Maxtor is not recognizing those. Is there anyway to solve this?

If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

Maxtor One Touch II - installation Software


I have a disk that worked for me and I am running windows xp. I also have the website address that is supposed to have the 98 drivers which could work perhaps. http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=Maxtor_OneTouch_Drive_USB/Win98SE_Driver&vgnextoid=b07d8b9c4a8ff010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD

Guess you could try them first and if that doesnt work I could perhaps make a backup of the disk/package/mail/ worth anything?

Windows repeats 'new hardware found' when I attch my maxstor One touch II


The reason is simple, your Maxtor drive "does not" support Windows-ME. Since Windows-ME is not supported by your Maxtor drive the drivers dont get resolved and will never get installed. FYI - Windows-ME is almost 10 years old. What makes you think Maxtor will support Windows-ME?
