Ok if you want you can download a recovery program just search it in google and this will get all your files off. as for your hdd it could be faulty so after you have got the files off take it back and get a refund or get another HDD.
But do not use the HDD again after you have got the files off it

Hi kennithtang,

Lets troubleshoot this together. First, lets check and make sure the power cord is plug into the wall and to the external HD, second, make sure the communications cable (most likely a USB cable) is plug into a USB port as well. If this does not work, try plugging the USB cable into another USB port on the computer or monitor. Hope this resolves the issue. If not, then hopefully, the hard drive from the external HD is extrackable. Then may need to purchase an enclosure that in compatible to a 500GB hard drive.

Hope this helps and good luck.

External Hardisk Maxtor 4 One Touch not detected


Have you tried different USB cables with the drive? If the drive is self powered (no ext power supply) which I think that one is, then it needs a really good cable to draw the 5 volts from the USB port. If you have tried a known working cable, then it could be the USB controller or the disk itself. You can buy the USB box on eBay really cheap and move the drive over.

Maxtor one touch III, Error code 10. Cannot access the device on any computer and "USB device not recognized". How do I get my data off of this thing?


The drive has failed. Most likely your data is lost, or will be very expensive to retrieve by a specialist.

Computer keeps restarting


Escape means that the changes were not saved.

Concerning the hd, it is possible to download a tool to verify its integrity. You can choose the version (bootable would be the best).

And for the memory stick, you could use the memtest86+ to verify if it is not the problem. I bought 2 memory sticks of 1 Gb each and there was one in problem. I had to test them individually, and found out the one was not good, after 8 hours of test.

Again, a bootable version is better.

I have seen the following external hard drive on Megabuy's web site but I canno see it anywhere else. Not even on the Maxtor site. Does it really exist and if so how does it review? Does it come with EMC...


yes it is true that maxtor has launched a hdd of the specification as mentioned in your post.
the same exists on maxtors website as well

the hdd comes along with one touch software that is used for data protection and recivery and has the same features as emc retrospect. further you can download the one touch software from

Maxtor enclosure


With great difficulty , i dont have a step by step guide , but i did the same thing , if you do do this you wont have the external shell anymore i ended up breaking mine to bits , so i suggest dont do this if u still want a external shell.

How to open: get a flat head screw driver and try to pop it open with brute strength careful you don't touch the HDD enclosed inside and to keep the wiring intact. there will be hidden screws inside the case which i ripped off.

Sorry i cant be of further help and Goodluck! :)
