NSLU2 not recognizing Maxton One Tourch II

    The Maxtor One Tourch II USB was orignally set up by someone on the NSLU2 --which seems to be working fine. However, the Maxtor drive when powered on and plugged in is not read/recognized at all. (It is also not read if directly on a PC - but I assume this is because it's in the Linksys format.) I've tried all kinds of plugging combinations, different cables, etc but nothing seems to work. The NSLU2 works fine with a USB drive. The Maxtor blue button flashes constantly.

    Any ideas? Maxtor help seems pretty worthless. I'm fine if I need to wipe the drive clean or if I need to try it w/out the NSLU2. Windows XP doesn't recognize it when tried a hardware install either.

    Thanks, Steph

    Opps meant Touch - but perhaps my true feelings are starting to show :)

    Is there supposed to be a driver for that drive or is it supposed to be Plug-n-Play?

    If it is ever physically recognized by Windows as a USB device, you can read the files formated in the ext3 format (the NSLU2 format) with this driver: http://www.fs-driver.org/index.html

    Driver file not accepted by windows

    The driver files are on the Maxtor installation CD. But windows wouldn't accept these either. (I saw a similar issue from a guy on another forum.) It says that the .inf file doesn't include the necessary info or something. I can get the actual verbage tomorrow.

    Thanks for the link.

    After it was all said and one it was still under warranty, so I'm sending it back. Thanks anyway.
