You have a possible corrupted file. Open My Computer and right-click the drive icon. Click PROPERTIES in the menu. Click TOOLS. Click CHECK NOW. Click a check into the AUTOMATICALLY FIX FILE SYSTEM ERRORS box. Click START. The OS may tell you a reboot is required.
If all else fails, dump the data to some other storage device and use DISK MANAGER to delete the partion, make a new partition and format.

well..it's possibly the case that the maxtor is looking for mp3 files that are compressed using a different algorithm than what you are sending to it. can you open an mp3 file, and look at the properties, then compare that to your mp3 file specs for your maxtor
All you should have to do is copy your files from their present folder on your computer to the Maxtor drive; you can find the drive location by clicking on the My Computer icon; or you can drag the files from their present position to the Maxtor.
Tell Rey Barcelo that the Installation software is on the hard disk
inside of his Maxtor OT Mini III 80 GB. There is no physical CD.
It's all on the hard drive inside of the device. I had my computer
expert look at it and now the device is working normally.
A lot of Kudos to you for steering me in that direction.
You can try and use PowerQuest PartitionMagic. It will allow you to partition/format/check most HDs including USB connected. Choices/options are from FAT16 to NTFS and Linux.
Another handy disk utility that is a freeware is HP's bootable flash utility at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/serveroptions/us/download/23839.html
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
