Thank you for sending your MAXTOR E-mail inquiry.

Dear Arnold Bosch:

Thank you for contacting us concerning this issue.

I am sorry to hear of your issue. Is the Maxtor 120G the C: drive? What drive letter is the Maxtor assigned? From the error you wrote: "C:\program files\microsoft games\mechwarrior" this would indicate the program was trying to install on your boot or C: drive. Some software will not allow you to chose a driver other then the default C: to install. Does the install for this game allow you to specify a path? It is also recommended to contact the software vendor, as they have more experience and trouble shooting knowledge with this software then we do.

Thank you,
Maxtor Technical Assistance
