EXTERNAL MAXTOR HARDRIVE WAS ISLIGHTLY DROPPED. NOW WHEN CONNECTED TO COMPUTER (USB) DOUES NOT DECTECTED. POWER ONLY FLASSHED (LED), AND MAKE A SMALL CLICK HARDRIVE SOUND, LIKE IT IS TRYING TO SPIN OR READ...


I think that your disk-drive is "SLIGHTLY" dead. :-(

Disassemble the enclosure.

Get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.

Access Maxtor's web-site, and check the warranty-status of the disk.

If the warranty still is valid, Maxtor will replace the disk-drive, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has ended, buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it into the enclosure, to "reconstitute" your external storage-device.

When I click on My computer, the maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus


Hi there,
You can try installing the drivers for the hard disk. Usually XP and vista operating systems detect the drives and install the drivers by themselves. But sometimes there are compatibility issues, which then require manual installation of drivers. I wonder what the operating system on your computer is. Please get back to me if you need further assistance.
Hope this helps :)

Maxtor 3200 hard drive not working alongside Maxtor Basics


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

No green light


If this is a new drive you will have to fdisk it and format it. It should have came with a cd driver disk to run before you plug it in. It will help you set everything up.

Leave it on or turn it off?


Personally I always leave them on. I seem to have had less problems that way.

You should still back up the really important stuff to something ie DVD etc.

It's not IF a HD will fail its WHEN.

I'm still using a 5YR old Lacie drive...

do you have an operating system installed on your C drive? if you have windows xp installed it should detect the external drive after you connect it, you may need to install the driver also. Check maxtors site for the latest software
