Installing external hard drive

  Rutlander 19:03 23 Apr 08

Has anybody experience of installing a Maxtor Basics hard drive (500gb).
Windows XP recognizes the new hardware but says it cannot install it without the software.
There was no software with it when I bought it BUT the Seagate website says software is not necessary for backing up files & folders.
I would be grateful for advice,
