Maxtor One Touch Plus 4 not found

Set up new 750 gb drive with 2 partitions, both appear on desktop, tried sd twice, first time, nothing happened, 2nd time, super duper failed to find either partition. It had, apparently, been searching for the 2nd one all night so I looked at the log and quit superduper. Now, I can no longer view the log but the schedule items are red. I did contact SuperDuper support the first time backup failed and confirmed that I set the drive up correctly. Can't find anything on the maxtor website so think it might be better to return this drive and try something else unless someone can suggest a solution.
Mac OS 10.4.11, Powermac G5, 2.3

Thank you for any help.
Randall

It sounds to me like the drive isn't working properly, Randall. What happens if you restart the Mac?

(I am never sure if I'm replying correctly--sorry if it's not)

thank you for your response. I restarted the computer, clicked copy now but did not edit schedule. Both partitions seem to have everything copied but the schedule is still red and I can't see the log unless I view it in the menu where it looks the way I think it should since it says copy complete at the end. The schedule shows that super duper ran and that it will run again next week. I tried restarting the computer again but that had no effect on the red schedule.

Thanks.
Randall

Delete the red schedule entries. Recreate them, and set the time to a few minutes from now. Then wait to see if it runs as expected.

Thanks--that solved that problem however, a target drive and destination partition don't match. The target drive has 250gb and the destination partition has 168gb. A few days ago, I found about 100gb duplicate files on my destination drive and put them in the trash. From what I can tell, a folder trash exists on Mac HD and on lacie 500 gb external drive but not on the Maxtor partition for the Lacie external drive. Maybe that's the way it should be?

I appreciate the help.
Randall

Use Finder's Go To Folder command to open

/Volumes

on the source. Any folders in there (not aliases or links)?
