If this can be done on DOS mode environment why not try it. Delete some unimportant fies so that it can free some spaces. Then try to view it again in windows environment if this helps.

You can find PDF versions of the documentation for this hard drive here. Scroll down to the Personal Storage 3100 to find the relevant links.

As far as the CD is concerned, Maxtor (which is now owned by Seagate) provides the drivers required to use the external drive as downloads on their website as well, which can be found here. If the CD contained more than just drivers, the only other option would be to contact Seagate directly and find out if they are able to send you a replacement.

UPGRADE DRIVER FOR MAXTOR 3100 EXT HARD DRIVE


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.
