Not sure if they still have this utlity for the latest Maxtor drives, but do a search for their acoustic management utlity at their website. It allows you to make changes to the drive to lower the noise (at the cost of a little bit of performance).

However, as far as I know, all Maxtor drives ship at a low default setting so if it can't be set any lower than it is now, it just may be a bit noisier than you hoped for.
