Depending on your operating system, and the specific model One Touch, there should be no install required. You simply connect the drive with the usb cable / firewire and it should work.

If this is not the case, or if you are specifically desirous of using the OneTouch button software, go to the following web site and select your exact model for the appropriate instructions.

I have a maxtor one touch 4 1 TB and I used it for a PC w windows 7. Now I have an apple computer and want to format it so I can read both pc and mac


FAT 32 format can be accessed by both pc and mac. the drive should be already Fat 32 formatted, but still, the files stored from the mac will not be able to be read by windows and visa versa in most situations.

you will run into trouble if you have to fat 32 format it yourself, as windows will only format up to 32 gigs of it in fat 32- you will have to make multiple 32 gig partitions to use the entire drive, and would be unable to keep more than 32 gigs of info per backup or folder, bacause of all the seperate partitions.

Can i use this maxtoe diamond max 21 500 gb drive for a c drive i am removing a 80 gig that is defective


If you mean remove your old 80 gb drive and replacing with the Maxtor 500 gb drive you should be able to. The Maxtor 21 series is equiped with SATA. Just make sure that your computer can run SATA. If not, I believe that there are adapters out there.
