Hi, pullmyfin597. check your computer in the device manager if you have audio drivers. Or Try to check the control panel:

Click start > control panel > sound then under playback tab, tick
the box show icon on desktop. Then the volume control will show up on your desktop screen.

Cannot install on my computer

Just go to their website and look under "support". Find you model and you can download the drivers for it. Maxtor has become Seagate but they still support Maxtor. Here is the website link you need.

Maxtor 3200 usb hard drive with windows vista home premium

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

My Maxtor OneTouch 4 simply does not backup anything! I have it turned on & attached to my PC. It worked before no problem. I also used it to back up from my Mac - no problem except it does not back up...

You most likely are running Windows Vista, which Maxtor has created an update for Maxtor Backup to work flawlessly in Vista.

You can find it on their site.
