Hi, the new computer should recognise the OneTouch and find the right drivers when you plug it in.

The SafetyDrill recovery CD does not have the drivers on it. It is just for use as a boot disc if you want to completely restore your PC with a SafetyDrill copy which has been made earlier.

There is no installation CD but the Maxtor Manager utilities, including SafetyDrill, were originally on the OneTouch drive itself and should still be there if you explore it. To install Manager click on the icon called 'Launch' (which is a green forward triangle/arrow with an orange square off centre on it)

The 'guides' file should still be on the drive too.

External HDD no longer recognized by new win7 PC


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

When you plug in via USB, does the USB recognize it and not display as HDD? If that is the case, then it's probably disabled somehow. Access Computer management, and check from there.

If that doesn't work, try on a different computer. If it doesn't work, your HDD has gone faulty. And if you recently changed your board, make sure you have a high speed USB port.

Transfering data from Maxtor to a new computer


It's a USB Hard drive, so you should plug the USB port into one computer, put your information on it, then plug the USB port into the other computer. Browse the Hard Drive for your data. It's like a larger flash drive.
