Same here. I've had nothing but trouble with Maxtor drives. I always use
Seagate or Western Digital. I also always have two hard drives (I only
use IDE currently) so I can back stuff up to one hard drive. It sucks,
but hard drives fail more than anything else for me at least. So I just
always keep two hard drives installed so my stuff gets backed up nightly
by a cron job and the really important stuff burned to DVD.
