I believe this link may help you.
what you need is to reset your settings, and set it up again.
this should not erase any data.
good luck

Blue light blinking and computer cannot find the drive

Most Techs on here blame the A/C adepter on these units to be a failure BUT. However I as of yet agree with there opinions to be FACT. Sure try a adapter but I feel its the usb/sata controller inside that has given out.

Most Simple tech external drives use Seagate or maxitor depending on what version , however these drive are extractable from the unit witch can be put in a free drive bay and thus the data can be worked off them now, if the drive is clicking called the click of death then your chances are neal on getting the data unless you take it to a data recovery center.

Hope this information does help

How do recover picture and music files only from hard drive. The computer that it was attached crashed and even when I tried to restore it before it crashed the data would not transfer to the restore point...

Connect the external drive to a different computer, and "browse" the contents of the drive -- if the disk can be read, then the files can be copied, and maybe burned to "blank" writable CD/DVD disks.

I have a Maxtor one touch 2 external hard drive,serial#2dd10020,worked fine on Windows XP,I'am now using it on Windows 7,it shows up in computer as drive Z,I cannot unlock it to get to my files,any help...

ok for one your computer no matter what OS you are using stores no drive letter , a drive letter is only given in the order as it is
installed on your system for example if you use 2 internal HDD
and one external HDD your computers C: drive will be the master
the F: will be the slave and the external will be G: , now if you have changed the order of the drives from your last OS then it
will conflict to the last drive letter given , your unit will know
what letter it was given so it must be in the same location for
the new OS , there is also the possibility that Windows 7 doesn't
support the driver for that unit , you can try hooking it up to
another computer retrieving your data , then hooking it back
up to windows 7 run its software , then installing the data back
into your HDD

Data disappeared overnight

I've seen a lot of flack about these puppies lately. It's usually due to the external enclosure, the harddrive is in, and not the harddrive itself.

It is for this reason, that I suggest that you take the harddrive out of this enclosure, and install it into a decent, affordable, new external enclosure.
External enclosures are relatively cheap!

The harddrive inside the Maxtor One Touch II is a desktop size harddrive. It's a 3.5 inch one.
(3 and a half inches across in width)
It is a Sata harddrive.

These are examples of external enclosures for a Sata 3.5 inch harddrive,|c:2778|&Sort=0&Recs=10
(My recommendation would be the Vantec NexStar 3 NST-360 Su-BL)

This external enclosure has instructions, is easy to install the harddrive, and uses a USB cable just like your old one.

How to retrieve data from external drive

I had similar problem. See FAQs on this site. My 300 GB One Touch II drive was not found in the XP machine either as USB or IEEE. When I remounted the drive in an external cabinet from Deltaco ( MAP-KC) is is running since. The Maxtor chassi was the trouble not the 3,5 " drive. All data is recovered. // Regards AH2FOTO

just today i had a maxtor TB drive go bad, and since i think it has two drives inside it i am very worried that i will not be able to do the same thing.

The harddrive itself has gone bad, only solution would be to replace the HDD inside the enclosure :-( sorry.

External Hard Drive

Couple of questions first: -What operating system was running on the new and old PC? -Is the old PC still running and available? Once you answer these we?ll start work.
