My Maxtor One Touch III has been running fine for several months on my Windows 7 64bit machine. Sometime last month I learned it wasn't showing up anymore, so I looked online after trying to get it working. The Seagate website for Maxtor drives (Seagate bought Maxtor) shows that there is no driver for Windows 7 and that it doesn't work at all on 64bit machines.

I haven't been able to get it back recently but it does show up on the device manager as well as Devices and Printers. I think there must be some way to reach it other than through My Computer which won't show it at all. I'm not ready to give this up... some of the info is pretty important. Does anyone have any ideas?

P.S. I've tried it on a Windows 7 machine with 32bits with similar results.

Well the way I solved the issue was to rip apart the Maxtor enclosure, pull out the hard drive and hook it up to another external enclosure. The hard drive works now.

Glad you got it worked out. I don't like to suggest that right away. Some people are not comfortable opening the cases and trying that.
