Well..it's possibly the case that the maxtor is looking for mp3 files that are compressed using a different algorithm than what you are sending to it. can you open an mp3 file, and look at the properties, then compare that to your mp3 file specs for your maxtor

    where did the Mp3 files come from in the first place?

    ahah...well..sounds like your player prefers the wma files, which are windows media audio files, by the way. You may wish to consult with your documentation to see where that takes you.

    i think they have a 30 day version, and if you want, we can set up a shared screen session, where I can show you. Send me an email through my profile address, if you wish.

Cannot transfer files from usb to hard drive but ok other way


Hi,

Since you did not mentioned how many files or how big is the files you are transferring I will just assume you are transferring several files or several folders. You best shot is to transfer files by batch or transfer it little by little. This way you will know which of the files are not transferring to your hard drive. Please note get all the files that are not giving errors. After doing that you need to scan your USB for errors.

If your Operating system is WINDOW 7 / windows xp

- Go to my computer
- Right click the USB drive then properties
- Click Tool tab
- Then Click check now
- After that try copying the files again.

I am attempting to transfer my files and documents from a Maxtor One touch mini iii that was operating on an old Dell Demension computer running windows XP to my new Dell Studio computer running Windows 7


With pc turned off plug the USB drive into new PC and boot it up. Now on new pc it should auto detect and install the USB drive. Now goto Computer and you will see your USB drive there. Open that up now its as easy as copying anything you like and pasting to whever you want to keep it on new pc

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.

How do i transfer files from maxtor


THe "One Touch" devices are usually USB/Firewire... As such it should connect up to the Mac USB OK.. then, it should show up as a "Drive" where one could then, with the right software be able to transfer files to & fro without too much trouble.
