Question about Maxtor One Touch III 500GB FireWire/USB2.0 External w/16M buffer Retail ****... 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I wonder if you might be able to help. I cannot power up my Maxotr One Touch III 500GB drive - i just get a blue blinking light on the drive and a green blinking light on the power cord. I have two identical units so I switched the cords and got the same result.
I have read on several web pages that my data is likely recoverable and that I should remove the drive and put it in a new casing. What do you think of that solution? Could a novice complete the process?
Data recovery firms want a fortune, but I would be bummed if all it took was a new casing.
"I believe what happened is that when the wrong adapter was connected it damaged some of the electronics inside. Specifically I would guess some filtering capacitors. You would need to open it to fix it. If you need the data I would think that the drive inside would still work so you could take it out and get the data off of it"
THE DRIVE IS STILL OK . JUST IF THE FIRM WARE OF THE CIRCUIT PLATES IF CHANGED CAN HELP YOU RECOVER THE DATA AT LEAST.
I STRONGLY FEEL , GET A SAME FIRM WARE HD AND CHANGE THE CIRCUIT PLATES AND RECOVER THE DATA . IF ITS IN WARRENTY GET A NEW REPLACEMENT .
IT CAN BE DONE BY A NOVICE PROVICED TO REMOVE THE PLATE YOU HAVE CORRECT TOOLS
