To solve this problem:

1. Go to "Control Panel > ... >Disk Management", find your drive there (it will have no letter assigned), right click, choose to assign letter, assign one, DONE.

2. Just for the case, the Maxtor "Software" everyone is talking here of is [currently] at http://www.seagate.com/support/sof [...] us_GM7.exe (thats the link my Maxtor Manager used when trying to update itself [unsuccessfully, hehe], so one can "intercept" it just looking at the error message (as I did), or, probably, with treh help of firewall logs).

Hope this helps,

I am attempting to transfer my files and documents from a Maxtor One touch mini iii that was operating on an old Dell Demension computer running windows XP to my new Dell Studio computer running Windows 7


With pc turned off plug the USB drive into new PC and boot it up. Now on new pc it should auto detect and install the USB drive. Now goto Computer and you will see your USB drive there. Open that up now its as easy as copying anything you like and pasting to whever you want to keep it on new pc
