Question about Maxtor OneTouch III TURBO EDITION 1000 GB Hard Drive

Open Question

Maxtor Hi Troy, My name is Michael and I read your thread about the Maxtor problem you experienced.  I believe that I have encountered the same issue, and was wondering if installing the drives internally into your computer has worked well for you.  I have an Apple G5 and was hoping I could do the same.  I don't even know if I have slots for the drives, and is it something that I could do easily myself.  I'm sure you are busy, but would appreciate your input.  Look forward to hearing from you when convenient. Thank in advance. Michael  ([email protected])

Actual solution. The darker side panels pop off and they alone hold things together. Simply pry each side away at rear. That would be end with power and USB connections are.

SOURCE: Drive won't mount

i had a maxtor one touch go bad and had to open the case and take it out of the external casing and put it into my computer as an internal drive. then it worked fine. it was a single drive.

just today i had a maxtor TB drive go bad, and since i think it has two drives inside it i am very worried that i will not be able to do the same thing.

SOURCE: I have a maxtor icon with a lock on it. I click on "unlock" and nothing works

Have you tried right clicking on the drive and going into properties. Click on security option and make sure that all the permissions for the drive are active with the exception of special permissions. Also look at the advanced security settings and make sure that you have full control permissions. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Maxtor One Touch 4 won't open

Hi, Generally one of three things will have happened, They damaged the cord, broke the connector inside the drive or they shorted the board by bending the connector. In the first case you can replace the AC adapter. In the other two cases it's not generally worth repairing due to cost. You can try locating a connector with the same voltage amperage and polarity to test the drive but you simplest solution in all three cases is simply to purchase a new enclosure at the local PC store and have the techs put the harddrive from the maxtor enclosure in the new case for testing(about $40). If this works you're done. If not the short may have damaged the cicuit board on the HDD. If the drive itself is damaged and you need the files that are on it you will need the help of a pro. Try the above suggestion and comment back here as to your results, if you need a pro, include your country and city in the comment and I will make an appropriate recommendation. Chris

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, after years of use my Vista machine now tells me that the USB Device isnt recognised.


However last month I found that the Maxtor is no longer recognisable to my machine. Reading through related postings on other sites it appears that Vista updates from Microsoft may be the reason why this functionality has suddenly ceased. I presume the security updates in particular may have meant that the Maxtor 3200 is also considered a potential threat. The question is who will take responsibility for resolving this issue of Maxtor 3200 users no longer being able to access their back up files via their Vista based machines. Personally I believe the onus is with Microsoft

hope this helps

Files saved on the maxtor hard drive become read only. I cannot make changes to the files and save it.


The cause of read only files are the files open by other network. To fix this problem copy your files and save it again to your computer. Or you may open the files and save it again in different file name.
