Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

1 Answer

MAXTOR OneTouch III mini edition 100GB

My hard drive has stopped working! Normally, i can connect usb lead from hard drive to laptop, and 'autoplay' box will appear in top left corner of screen. It then loads the songs so i can play them on itunes on my laptop. Now, for no obvious reason, it's doing neither of these. My laptop is'nt even recognizing the hard drive when connecting. I only use my maxtor hard drive to store all of my songs which i use for Dj'ing.
My laptop has never caught a virus, and i dont understand what's gone wrong! PLEASE can anyone help? I'll appreciate any feedback relating to this problem. Thanks.

    There is a very quiet clicking sound when connecting the usb cable. Also, the white led remains static (when normally it flashes), and the device makes a beeping sound, though this does not happen every time.

Does the hard drive spin up? is there any ticking / grinding sounds from the hard drive? are you plugging it into a different usb port than you were before?

My pc and laptop not detect my Maxtor OneTouch III Mini External 100GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive R01E100 what can i do please help me soon as possible


Good Day Anantsharma8!

If your PC and Laptop can not detect your external hard drive, I do suggest you check its usb cable. A substitute cable will confirm if your current usb cable is faulty or has an open wire.

Most common reason why the external hard drive is not recognize by PC or Laptop is due to loose connection of the hard disk inside the connectors of the enclosure.

Anantsharma8, if you have a small precision screw, I recommend you open the enclosure of the external hard drive. Remove the front face where usb and power plug connects, then slide it out to expose the hard disk also. You will see two connectors. These are the ones that always loosen. Please disconnect both the connectors and then connect it again properly. Put the hard disk back, close the enclosure and try to connect again with your PC or laptop via usb cable.




Good Luck! I hope that it will soon recognize your external hard drive.
