Did you format the full 300Gs?
What version of XP do you have... XP, XP SP1, XP SP2... SP=Service Pack.
What brand of HD?

Is this a HD that you have used before? Is it new?

You may have to try a low level reformat. It seems to me that some old data is still readable on the drive or go to the makes sire of the HD and used there reformat tool

If Maxtor offers a formatting/setup utility (on the CD that came with the drive or through a download from their website), use that to do the format. Manufacturer's utilities are often better than Windows'.
