Question about Maxtor One Touch III 500GB FireWire/USB2.0 External w/16M buffer Retail ****... 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

Maxtor 1Touch4 won't connect

Hello,  I've ben editing with the Max4 tower ext drive since May with no problems. Suddenly, my FCP began freezing during playback and upon relaunching (after having to Force Quit) the icon doesn't appear and FCP alerts me with a "scratch disk is missing" message.
I've tried the usual restart-shut down-unplug/replug-reboot quick-fix, but no dice.  So...how do I get it back?  And is all my data lost?
HELP!

FIXYA! Hey, found out my maxtor issue...pretty much by accident though, with a little pinch of desperation. I powered down my MacBook, disconnected the drives (2) from their firewire and power and waited for about, oh, I dunno....30-40 seconds. Upon stubborn study of the power supply, something told me to just switch one adapter for the other!

So...I did it. Once plugged back in to my power strip, both LED's lit up and stayed continuous. Then, I just reconnected their firewire ports and, voila!...I was back online. Hate to think all that stress was just a matter of swapping power cords...but...here I am.

Hope that helps someone else.

Hi I have a quick question. after I have been downloading my pictures from my camera to computer, I am not able to edit them or download them onto any websites. is this an error w/my camera or computer?


You did not state which computer or software you are using to edit your video, bu the general consensus is the raw footage has to be "unwrapped" from its compressed form (video gets compressed to fit on SD card) so that it can be editable with your software. Otherwise, editing the footage will be difficult. I use a Mac and FCP. My workflow is - after moving the files from my SD Card to my ext. hard drive, I batch load them into MPEG Streamclip (free software for PC and Mac). Then I choose Apple ProRes 422 (LT) to transcode my raw footage. After waiting for the process to finish (minutes to hours, depending on how many files you batch load), I import my files into FCP and everything works great. No more issues. Also, if you are working on a Mac, iMovie will accept your Rebel.mov files without issue. iMovie unwraps the footage with the Apple Intermediate Codec automatically and editing in iMovie is so simple that it makes me want to smack myself for not trying it sooner after editing on FCP for the last 10 years.......

Connected 20V laptop power supply to 1touch4 by accident. Now with its own 12v pwr supply connected, it just flashes and HD does not spin up. Pulled it apart and nothing obviously fried. Any suggestions?


The electronics has been damaged and the cost of repair may be high even if you can find an electronic repairer.
I suggest you put your money towards a new USB hard drive as 1Tb hard drives are less than $100.

hello,
-make sure that the cables from the ext hard drive is properly connected like power if there is and USB -try other USB port -try other USB devices -try other USB cable for that Maxtor -try other computer
the reason why you are doing that is to know if the USB port is broken of if the ext hard drive is not responding.
cheers.
