Hello,

I hope that somebody can help..

I recently bought a Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 Drive that is 120GB ATA/133 HD for an HD-337-FW: 3.5" Aluminum Firewire External Enclosure

The drive is recogonised by Windows 2000, and everything seems fine, then after a while, of a lot of HD activity writing or reading from the drive I get an error message titles Delated Write Failed the contents of the message says

"Windows was Unable to save all the data for the file \Device\HarddiskVolume3\$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere."

When I look at the event log I see an event ID :11 with the following information

Event Type:      Error

since you are able to see the event log, i assume that you are able to boot..once you boot, do this.

on your desktop, right mouse click on "My computer", click on "manage".

when you go there, on the left pane select disk management.. what do you see there? do you see the external HD?if yes,  format it.(right mouse click, select format.) after formatting, restart the machine. let me know if this helps.

Hello,

I can see the drive in the disk Management, it tells me its a basic disk. and yes I can reformat it. its been formatted as an NTFS

But still get the same error when I am moving large amounts of data across the drive it starts giving me this error message..

If I am just playing music from it or watch back a DivX file then its fine.. weird huh!

Something that I think I failed to mention is that I am connecting to this drive via a firewire connection.

Also I had the same problems on the first drive and external enclosure I had, which I took back to the shop to replace.

Just to update anybody that is having the same problem (though I doubt anybody was as there were no more answers)

I tried swapping the HD in to a Lacie enclosure and all was well.. So I ditched the Mobile disk enclosure and bought a different one was was guaranteed based on the oxford chipset.

This works for me so the problem is now solved!

I have given the points to Adonis1976 as he was the only person who had any ideas!
