Make sure you remove old software from Onetouch II (two) first and restart computer... then download software from this link http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=ot3-maxbu-vista&vgnextoid=c42f69a859d63110VgnVCM100000f5ee0a0aRCRD
It is Onetouch III (three for VISTA) your computer will still recognize the TWO version and will ask you to allow the install. Once you install and run software it wll ask you for old password you assigned when you ran the drive on XP. Just enter and you are good to go. :-)
Worked like a charm for me.

This doesn't require downloading anything, installing anything, or holding your mouth in a certain way.


1) Plug the drive into power and into your Vista PC's USB port.
2) When the 'Found New Hardware' wizard pops up, click the recommended option. When it says it can't find the drivers, select 'Show me other options', and then Browse your computer for drivers. Choose the C:\ drive, and click next.**

**The key here is that Windows Vista comes pre-installed with the drivers for the Maxtor external hard drives. So they're on your PC, even if the Wizard tells you they're not.

4) Wait a few minutes, and yo will see a window that reads, "The software for this device has been successfully installed," and now it will appear as a drive letter under 'Computer'.

thanks RP

Trying to get my maxtor II to work with windows 07 software but it wont read the usb connection? After i have installed the software for maxtor.


Check Control Panel, System, Device Manager and make sure windows see's the connection. If you see a yellow triangle, that means the drivers are not correct. If you don't see it at all, that is a problem. Give Maxtor a call. You may need to update your motherboard bios, chipset drivers. At worst, you might have a problem with the motherboard or maxtor II device.

Maxtor One Touch II - installation Software


I have a disk that worked for me and I am running windows xp. I also have the website address that is supposed to have the 98 drivers which could work perhaps. http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=Maxtor_OneTouch_Drive_USB/Win98SE_Driver&vgnextoid=b07d8b9c4a8ff010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD

Guess you could try them first and if that doesnt work I could perhaps make a backup of the disk/package/mail/ worth anything?

Maxtor is now owned by Seagate, and yes, you can go to http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/installation_assistance/installation_instructions/external_drives_&_personal_servers/ot2
Hope that helps, i am trying to get my Maxtor External II working now too, I think it's a power supply, cause it wants to keep installing the driver, but the driver is already there. Hmmm anybody?

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).

Windows repeats 'new hardware found' when I attch my maxstor One touch II


The reason is simple, your Maxtor drive "does not" support Windows-ME. Since Windows-ME is not supported by your Maxtor drive the drivers dont get resolved and will never get installed. FYI - Windows-ME is almost 10 years old. What makes you think Maxtor will support Windows-ME?
