I HAVE BEEN USING THE maxtor ONE TOUCH 500 GB hard drive for 2 years.i went for vacation one month and now i noticed the drive is not visible. It says unknown drive cannot be recognised


If the drive itself is bad then you are out of luck. However, it might be possible that the drive controller is bad and if you take out drive from the enclosure you will be able to salvage the drive. It most probably has a SATA drive so if you have a fairly new (like 3/4 years old) desktop computer you can put that drive inside it.

External HDD no longer recognized by new win7 PC


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Browse to the location on the new computer where you want to save the old data.
Right click and choose New Folder.
Name the folder Files from Old PC
Press enter twice and the new folder will open.
Plug the Maxtor USB into the new computer and turn on the power.
The drive will install and be given a drive letter in my computer.
Browse to the drive in My Computer and double click the Maxtor drive.
Browse to the folder where you saved the old data and open it.
Now do the keyboard command CTRL + A (select all) this will select all the files.
Click one of the selected files & drag them all to the new folder you have open and let go.
All of the files from the Maxtor will copy to your new computer.

I backed up my old Dell laptop last year. I bought a new Dell laptop. I want to access the backup on my Maxtor and cannot do it. I want to load it onto my new laptop. How do I do this? I want to back up...


Very Simple. Just connect the Maxtor External Hard drive to your new laptop. Open Windows Explorer and you will see the Maxtor appearing as a Drive. Access the files from the explorer.
My advice is that create a new folder on the maxtor and then do a backup of your new laptop on to this new folder.
DO the same for your office PC.

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?

Maxtor Diamondmax 80GB ATA 133 help!


there are several programs you can use to get your data off.
You will have to slave your new drive on to the IDE cable that your old one is on, you can then use symantec ghost to clone the old drive to the new,
Acronis true image is the other program you can use, put acronis true image on the new drive and the slave the old drive and take and image of it then recover it to the new drive.
Hope this helps

It is possible to replace/transplant the circuit board. But I am not sure of the motor and the platters. I would suggest you not to play around with the platters. If you wish to replace the circuit board (I guess it is also called the logic card) get a hdd of the same make and size and replace it with this one.
