My pc and laptop not detect my Maxtor OneTouch III Mini External 100GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive R01E100 what can i do please help me soon as possible


Good Day Anantsharma8!

If your PC and Laptop can not detect your external hard drive, I do suggest you check its usb cable. A substitute cable will confirm if your current usb cable is faulty or has an open wire.

Most common reason why the external hard drive is not recognize by PC or Laptop is due to loose connection of the hard disk inside the connectors of the enclosure.

Anantsharma8, if you have a small precision screw, I recommend you open the enclosure of the external hard drive. Remove the front face where usb and power plug connects, then slide it out to expose the hard disk also. You will see two connectors. These are the ones that always loosen. Please disconnect both the connectors and then connect it again properly. Put the hard disk back, close the enclosure and try to connect again with your PC or laptop via usb cable.




Good Luck! I hope that it will soon recognize your external hard drive.

I have an IMAC and our Maxtor 500G external hard drive is not being detected when we connect. It was previously connected to a windows PC, how do we connect this to the mac to access files. Currently when...


Connect it to a PC. If it still does not work, then it's time to disassemble the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a compatible replacement disk-drive, install it, to "reconstitute" your external storage device.

Take the model-number and serial-number from the old disk-drive, and check Maxtor's web-site, to see if the warranty is still valid.
If so, then Maxtor will replace the disk-drive, at no cost to you.

WD external Hard drive 320 GB hangs my computer everytime connect


Try the external hard-drive in some other computer.
If it still causes problems, then it is the external hard-drive, not your laptop, that has the problem.

If the warranty on the external hard-drive is still valid,
exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

If the warranty has expired, you could try to "disassemble" the casing, to remove the "internal" hard-drive that is "inside" the casing.
Then, connect that hard-drive to a desktop computer,
and copy your data to the 'C:' drive (or burn your data to CD/DVD disks), if you can -- it's possible that the "electronics" that convert the USB-interface to the hard-drive interface is the problem, and that your data on the hard-drive is perfectly OK.

Acer aspire one hard disk cannot read


Check the BIOS configuration for the hard disk, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer should detect the hard drive as an external disk drive. If this computer cannot detect it and/or cannot open the folders etc. the the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to install a new hard drive in the Acer and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs to get the laptop operational again.
