I've come across two maxtor external drives. One is a 250GB OneTouch 4 mini. The other is a 60GB OneTouch 3 mini. I plug them into my windows 7 box and nothing happens. The 60 gb one starts beeping. I assume this means there are not formatted correctly perhaps.
I plug them into my mac and they are recognized quickly. I format both the drives to fat with disk utility. I plug them back into my windows machine. Still nothing. Still beeping on the smaller drive.
I'd like to get these on the windows 7 box and format them for ntfs. Are there other disk utility software I should be trying? On the windows box in device manager they do not even show up as unknown devices. Any ideas?
