have taken an older HDD and put it into a new computer and went to
format it using disk management (NTFS) but at the end i get an error message
saying the "windows was unable to complete the format" and then says
"the disk in drive E cannot be formatted".
when clicking on the drive in explorer an error comes up saying the
disk is not formatted.
i've tried 3 times to format it, including a quick format and still the same.
this particular HDD had windows on it before but should that really
make a difference?
am using winXP pro SP2
the HDD is an IDE Maxtor 60gig. the jumpers are set to slave.
any help is appreciated and thanks in advance!
