We found out after the Geeksquad screwed up on a harddrive recovery that the Maxtor one touch is auto formated for the PC. And if you have an Apple you can see the data but it is all locked. In order to unlock you have to save a copy of the data elsewhere, wipe the drive clean, and reformat it.

That might be your problem as well?

Unlocking external drive

You may have the encryption set on the drive - meaning it needs a password to access the Maxtor. Is this problem on the original computer you installed the Maxtor or on a different machine? Either way try reinstalling the Maxtor software. If you do not have it you can get it online at:
