    When I plug in my Maxtor Mini III, it either beeps and doesn't show up on my desktop, or it continuously flashes and doesn't show up; I can't get any data off of it. Please help.

It's a USB Hard drive, so you should plug the USB port into one computer, put your information on it, then plug the USB port into the other computer. Browse the Hard Drive for your data. It's like a larger flash drive.

How can I confirm that the data is transferred from my computer to the Maxtor hard drive?


The best way to confirm that 100% of data has copied from one location to another is to use a "checksum". There is a free Windows program that can do this, download it here:

http://corz.org/windows/software/checksum/

Then click "Download" on the right hand side and download the Zip file containing the setup program and run the program.

A checksum is when a "hash" of two files or folders are compared. A "hash" is like a fingerprint of a file or a folder. So if 2 folders have the same hash, they have the same data and are identical. This way you can know you copied your data correctly to your USB hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Light turns on but My Computer does not recognize the drive


Sounds like you lost the drivers for your external. W/ out an online PC you cannot download them either. Do you have a friend that could do this on their PC? That is the only way.

Open up the case


Well, since you are discarding the case, use a small flat head screw driver or something to pry the case open. Once inside, the HD will be plugged in to a circuit board and screwed in place. Unscrew it and carefuly unplug the HD from the circuit board. Then you can transfer it to another external HD housing.
