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

My Maxtor One Touch III external hard disk has suddenly stopped getting recognized on my laptop. I am using a Windows XP, SP 2 OS. The system is unable to recognize the USB device. Can someone please help?


Check power of HDD, that problem can usually manifest because some of your usb ports can't send enough Volts to your device, restart your machine, check connections, and it should work again as charm :)))


Please rate my solution, thank you :)

My computer no longer recognizes the Maxtor one


Windows may be recognizing the drive but not assigning a drive letter for some reason. you may need to go to disk management2_bing.gif and look for the drive there.

to do so go to control panel/administrative tools/computer management

once computer management is up find disk management, inside you will find all the drives that are connected to your computer, you should find your drive, If you do not then the drive may be bad or you are having usb issues.
If the drive is there but does not have a drive letter assigned to it, this may be because another drive has taken the letter normally assigned to it, you will need to right click on it and say "assign drive letter"

Let me know if this helps.

Light turns on but My Computer does not recognize the drive


Sounds like you lost the drivers for your external. W/ out an online PC you cannot download them either. Do you have a friend that could do this on their PC? That is the only way.

I am not sure what model you have but the Maxtor hard drive downloads site has many system drivers, original software and Vista driver updates. The site is located at:

http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/installation_assistance/installation_instructions/external_drives_&_personal_servers/ot3

If that does not work contact Seagate (they own Maxtor) at 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283).

If you look at the site carefully you will see a small asterisk near the bottom that says * Windows2000/XP compatible. This seems to apply to several of the available downloads.
