Question about Maxtor One Touch (RBAY080B0USR) Hard Drive

1 Answer

IO Device Error

Hard Drive was working fine until today - no changes. I have a Maxtor 200GB One Touch. When I try to access the drive, I get the following error: L:/ is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. I have tried a different USB cable and tried other USB ports and got the same result. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

My Maxtor died like this. The disk was OK, it was the electronics that blew. I bought a new empty disk drive box and fitted the disk drive and fixed it. Years later the disk still works in the replacement box and power supply. I got my files and data back with the disk drive in the new box. The size of that disk looks small today. It may be Parallel (PATA) and you need a PATA box, that is harder to find as obsolete. You need to try the disk first in another drive holder.

So PATA and SATA??? Look here and read up about it with pictures too:

An external disk unit has three main parts.
1. The disk drive.
2. The electronics box.
3. The power supply.

SOURCE: maxtor external hard drive is not accessable

- Do you hear any beep sound when you plug in the USB drive into the laptop? - You can also try a different USB cable - Try connecting the hard drive to a different computer and see if it works All those steps will help you determine where the issue is. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck

SOURCE: Device not working

Most of the time when you get error messages like this it is due too drivers. Now in order to determine this issue I need to know what type of computer you have, OS installed on it, how old the PC etc. Please advise!

I have seen this one before. You need to reinstall the Maxtor software and reset the encryption - if you do not have CD you can get the software online at:

SOURCE: How Do You Open a Maxtor 3200 500 gb case?

How to open the enclosure You will need a long flat piece of metal.

On the sides of the enclosure are small slits.

If you look in the slits diagonally you will see a metal tab.

Slide the metal tabs about 1/4" towards the ends of the case. (there are 4 slides one on each corner)

The case will now open freely.

My Maxtor 200GB external HD is not showing up on my Mac G4. I've tried USB & Firewire connections. Restarted the Maxtor then computer. Restarted computer, then Maxtor No good. Thanks for your...

If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

Maxtor 3200 personal 200gb drive external

If you did in fact change the partioning structure then the only recourse is to send the drive to a data recovery center. If the drive is running they should be able to recover the data.

MAXTOR ONE TOUCH 4 MINI

Try it in another computer if you have one. Or...try it in another USB port on your desktop PC. I would see if it appears in the device manager. If so, and you don't get a drive letter, try running
'diskmgmt.msc' and looking to see if the drive pops up under available drives.

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor

If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.
