I am trying to format my secondary hard drive (1.5 seagate barracuda ) but windows says it cannot complete the format. When i go to disk management it shows the hard drive as RAW and I am trying to format this hard drive but i cannot. Also I try the seagate diagnostic toot (seatool) but when i run it it says it haas stopped working and shuts down.

If the diagnostic cannot complete...it usually reflects an error message.

Can you post that?

Which version of SeaTools are you using?

Worth Reading, IMO.

Frankly, I would not run the Windows version of SeaTools, I prefer the DOS version...which accesses the drive when Windows is not running.
