Uniblue should have no affect on your hard drive firmware. If the SMART status passes then I would zero out the disk and then partition and format. If you can connect the drive to your computer then use Partition Wizard and do a disk wipe zero quick fill then partition and format. You can also use the bootable version of Partition Wizard to do the same thing. Backup any data you currently have on the drive first because with a zero wipe you will have nothing on the drive to recover.

Sorry, I was not clear. In my post#2 I mentioned that if you zero out the drive there will be no more data available and any data should be backed up. I think from your post #5 it seems you had an OS on the drive. If that is correct then you would need to reinstall the OS. If you want to test the drive you can do it with Gsmartcontrol for Windows to run short and long generic tests of the drive. It does not require .NET
