Unless the data on the maxtor is very important You should format the drive, assuming you are using windows, go to my computer, right click on the drive, it should show the option to format. If the info is very important, my advice take it to a info recovery business.

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.

Windows -Delayed write failed. Windows was unable to save all the data for the file D:\$MFT


You've got a "hardware" problem with the disk-drive. Windows cannot write an updated 'MFT' ("Master File Table") to reflect files that you have added/deleted/updated on the Maxtor.

Copy all the files from the Maxtor, e.g., onto another external drive, or "burning" to DVD disks, and then replace the Maxtor disk-drive.

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB 6Y080L YAR41BW0 internal hard drive not working think it might be the PCB Board not working.


It's possible that you're correct.

However, finding a Maxtor drive with an identical PCB is not going to be easy. Once you do, you can disconnect the "spinning" part of the disk-drive away from the PCB, and then swap PCB, and see if you can then QUICKLY(!) copy all 80GB to a "new" disk-drive.
