Question about Maxtor OneTouch III (T01E160) 160 GB USB Hard Drive

Open Question

My Maxtor One Touch III 160GB won't turn on anymore... it used to work when I simply pressed the power switch in back, but over time, it began requiring more and more switch-flipping to turn on, and now it won't turn on anymore at all. Please help...

if you go to the Maxtor driver page for Vista drivers for this product, scroll to the last one, and it says it cnn be used for Vista AND for other OS where the original driver (on the mini drive) has been eradicated! a 256MB download = downloading at the moment and will let you know if it works!

SOURCE: My Maxtor One Touch III shows up in Device Manager

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the drive. Maxtor doesn't have any updates availble because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

My maxtor one touch iii mini will not start on my new windows 7 computer


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,

Purchased Maxtor ONE TOUCH III. when I had XP. Now that I have Vista, mAXTOR DOESN'T RECOGNIZE IT. iS THERE AN UP-DATE? nEED HELP. Thanks Marty xmartico@san.rr.com


Hey xmartico,

If your recent update from Windows XP to Windows Vista has been the only major change to your computer system since you could access your Maxtor One Touch III last, you may simply need to reinstall the Maxtor software to resolve the problem.

Information provided by the manufacturer has suggested that if no password was ever set, the hard drive should work with Vista immediately with no additional work required. If you had chosen a password however, you may need to reinstall the software and reboot every time you disconnect/shut down the external drive, or disable your user account control (UAC). Please keep in mind though that disabling UAC is strongly discouraged, as it may open your computer to attacks by various malware programs including viruses and spyware.

If you're still not quite sure how to proceed, I would strongly recommend contacting Maxtor directly for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Maxtor OneTouch III 160GB Mini


Does the Maxtor have a 120 cord? If so how about using a converter? They are about 20-30 dollars and connect to the 12 v system of the car and can be placed anywhere.
