To start with im not a Mac person ,
but make sure you have the jumpers set to either, slave,master or cable select,

if you already have a drive in the mac, it will be the master, so set the other to slave.

hope this helps you

My Maxtor Hard Drive wont let take off or load on any material. It keeps saying it can not be be modified. What do I do ???


if its not the C/: and isn't an external drive then as a secondary drive it has become coprrupt with its signing to windows because of it booting up with windows , right click on it and reformat it or use something like Maxblast or Acronis to boot it up and if that works then you can remove any content to reformat it just check to see if content needs to be removed before reformatting.

Beeping, not showing on computer


Its beeping because its damaged! sad to say but the beeping is an error code! the other downside is hard drives are hard to repair so you may need to buy a new one.

He safetydrill shows in the window but when i click on autorun, it says it doesnt know what application to use, i am trying to install the maxtor one touch 4 on a mac


"Autorun" is a Windows package. You don't need to use any of that stuff on a Macintosh.
Just launch Disk Utility from Applications/Utilities, use the Partition section to define one partition in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format with the volume name of your choice. In about ten seconds, you will have a perfectly working Mac OS external drive. (If you don't do this, the drive will still appear to work, but will still be in a Windows format, which can cause certain types of data loss on Macintosh files.)

I am not familiar with external hd, but with macs.  It will not let you reformat a disk if that is the starup disk.  Instead of disk utility, you need to PROBABLY reinstall the os using a universal full install disk.  That´ll let you reformat the hd.

Hi there, I think it may be to do with the format of the harddrive - see if you used the Maxtor in a Windows XP environment it would have been formatted to suit that OS.

Is the Harddrive formatted to NTFS?

I am trying to install my maxtor onetouch 4 on my pc. I have already installed it on my mac with no problems, but for some reason it wont register where I can intall it... Please help


If it is already set up for your mac, you wont be able to install it on your PC. Mac;s and PC's have type file systems, you should put everything important back onto your mac, and then format your drive using the PC. Then you will be able to share files from your pc to your mac.

Maxtor 300GB--can't delete or write


You didn't specify if the original PC was Windows or MAC.

Is this USB external used on a PC with Windows? If so is it formatted NTFS? If so, Mac OSX and pretty much everything else but windows NT, 2k and XP can not write to NTFS. OSX and Linux will read an NTFS partition but at this time not write to it. If your drive is formatted NTFS, I would say, go to a windows machine and convert it to a FAT 32 Partition. Most everything will both read and write to FAT32.

Drive Not Read By ANY Computer


Hi,
Before installing the Maxtor drive you need to take a backup of the software on the Maxtor. You then need to burn this s/w to a cd to allow you to install the s/w onto any Mac (or PC) you want to use the Maxtor with. If you don't enable the encripted mode then you don't have this problem.

If you didn't take a backup before starting then have a look on the Maxtor site for the correct s/w.
Cheers, robbo
