External Hard Drive Write Error

I have a maxtor 300gb external harddrive, which I partitioned into two separate drives, one around 100gb, and one around 180gb. The 100gb partition I use for backing up work files and such, the 180 I use for extra space and downloads and such. Lately the 180gb has been getting to about half full, and I've started getting write errors that come up in the windows corner bubble thing. The say the file I was copying or moving could not be written to the drive and then another one comes up saying the that save data for the MFT would be lost.

I wonder, would increasing the size of the mft solve this problem? Because the files I have on there are rather large video files, multiple files over 350mb and up.

Any help would be appreciated.
