max blast is the clue, the Maxtore Drive as been setup with "max blast" overlay Software. I sounds like the Partition Info is corrupt you may be able to correct this by downloading the program click here

I have not used it. As I do not like Disc Overlay software, only if there is no alterative to running a bigger disc
