I'm trying to use Dban to erase my hard drive. I burned Dban ISO to disc correctly. When I run it and use quick erase function it stops after a few seconds and gives me these error messages-

*Error/dev/sda (process crash)

*Error/dev/sdb (process crash)

*Error/dev/sdc (process crash)

*Error/dev/sdd (process crash)

*Error/dev/sde (process crash)


Nothing is erased.


I did some google searching and found various things about disabling SATA drives or something. Something about Dban stopping at USBs. I don't know because I'm not too techy. I've tried looking in BIOS but I don't really know what to change. I also tried disabling 4 different Generic USB devices in device manager with no effect.


Here's something I found in Dban's help forum- http://sourceforge.net/p/dban/discussion/208932/thread/332bf1d2/


Could someone please help me out and walk me through what I have to do to get Dban running. It's getting to be a real pain and I'm about to do an "Office Space" beat down on my PC!


I have a HP Pavilion P6000 Series,  Model No6505uk

I have windows 7 Home Premium


Any help would be really great.
