    My new one touch as stopped working.:cry: For the last two months its has been working without any problems but now its not seen by my computer.

    Its connected via firewire. I have also tried connecting by usb still no luck. I have also tried connecting to another computer its also not seen on this.

    The touch button is constantly flashing blue.:rolleyes: Fyi I’m using xp pro sp2.

    Anyone have idea how I can get it working again ?



    Thanks

    sounds like an RMA case to me - the blue flashing should only happen when the drive has gone into "power save" mode. That is assuming it is flahing "evenly", when it flashed top side/bottom side that indicates data transfer in process and also looks to have a slightly faster flash rate.

    Either way it does sound from what you have tried that the drive has somehow died. I have the same device about a year old and no problems here with the actual drive itself. Hope the RMA process is acceptable and any data you had on there is not critical!

    I am afraid RMA is where you return to the supplier under guarantee for a replacement... it will not help with your data. I have no idea what could be done to recover your data - the best bet for persuing that would be the Maxtor technical support. They will want your serial number and model. Personally I would not hold out too much hope, but you never know and the only way to find out is to try....
