Although they write that there is a clonning software included, they do not mention anything about how it will be done or if you need a double bridge on the cable (to connect two drives).

I think that you should refer this question to maxtor support service at the next link: http://www.maxstore.com/contactus.asp

Install driver of maxtor 160gb onetouch 4 mini


Hmmm What software do you need?
You should not need software to run the HDD. Just plug it in.
You can get the One Touch software from Seagate (who no own Maxtor) See

Hi, I have a maxtor SATA drive with my OS installed, I tried to install another ide maxtor drive for extra storage and now my computer will not boot from the SATA drive.


It will not boot because the new drive is been seen as the primary and not the secondary drive.

On teh new drive you will find (at teh cable connection point) a set of pins with a jumper) this jumper needs to be set so the drive is in either the slave or cable select mode and not teh master mode

I am trying to install a Maxtor Basics 500GB External Desktop Hard Drive and cannot see the drive on my PC. I'm assuming it is not installed. I operate a Windowss XP Platform. Help!


Right click on my computer and go to manage, then go to storage, disk manager and see if the disk shows up there, you may need to partition it first, you can make one partition of that hard drive. If it is not in there, check the jumpers and make sure it is not the same as the main HD. The main drive should be master and the second drive should be slave, or make it cable select and do it in the bios.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
