Hi, I seem to be having a very strange problem, while playing several different video games located on several of my secondary hard drives the games will crash randomly, and a message will pop up that says, "You need to format the disk in drive X: before you can use it." X referring to all of the drives this has happened too, which are D: and the partitioned G: and H: This is really weird because i have been using these drives for years, and this is the first time I've had trouble with them. I looked around and I could only find it in relation to portable external hard drives, and there was also some people that mentioned a boot sector virus. Since after the game crashes the hard drive it says needs formatting is the one the game is located on, it leads me to believe that it is a hard drive problem. Any help is appreciated, Thanks.
