Question about Maxtor OneTouch II external hard drive 300GB 7,200 RPM - FireWire & USB (E04W300)
I have a maxtor one touch 300gb. when it is pluged in to a usb and powered by ac, an amber light comes on. after a minute or 2 it flashes a green light the alternates between green and amber. the computer never recognizes the drive. i have tried on 3 machines running xp and vista. could it be stuck in a reformat mode?
The USB Isn,t supplying/providing enough Power to the device.
Search e-bay or similar for a 2 into 1 USB Cable.
Then power the unit with 2 USB Ports on the Computer.
2 x USB Into 2 x Sockets On P.C. 1 x Into Device Drive.
This will be enough power to operate the Device Correctly.
I,ve done this on several external Drives, never failed for Me.
