I have the Maxtor One Touch III 500GB Triple Interface. Actually, I have three of them. Windows XP Pro reported a write failure with the K: Drive. I looked at the drive and the lights said it is in power save mode. The other drives were working just fine.
After some other diagnostic steps, I decided to change power supplies / bricks. The problem MOVED with the power supply. By this I mean A) the lights report the drive is in power save mode and B) Windows no longer recognizes the drive. Hence, I'm thinking the problem has something to do with the power supply. The data on the K: drive is 100% fine.
I swapped the power supply back and again the K drive stays in power save mode and Windows fails to recognize it. The other drive (N) is 100% fine and works like a champ.
Any thoughts on is going on?
How do I get a replacement power supply unit (if that is the problem)?
