Maxtor External Hard Drive Trouble

Hello. I recently got a new computer and copied all my files to a Maxtor n256 80 GB external hard drive. Now, when I connect the drive to the new computer I can see the drive in Explore, but get an I/O error when trying to read anything on it. I loaded some Maxtor One Touch II software I found, and when I run the troubleshooting portion on the disk it scans for the disk and cannot find it. Although, when I do a scan for drive information it sees it. It also shows up in Explore, but gives me the I/O error when I try to see what is on it? Do you have any suggestions? I really, really need to get to these files! Thanks so much.

Hi there i hav ea maxtor onetouch 4 mini 120 gb.

Remove the hard drive from the Maxtor case, purchase an USB hard drive adapter case, and install the hard drive inside this case. Then you can connect this to the computer's USB port and if the hard drive is OK then this computer will detect it as an external USB hard drive, then you can open the folders and files and back them up.

Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.

Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.
