Does your HDD makes a shacking noise when it is running or when you are trying to read or write ont he HDD? if so then you may want to look at checking the HDD for internal damages and if not, you may want to update your MOBO's BIOS.

that is a sign that this hard drive is also failing.
please contact WD to RMA this hard drive back.
you can submit a complaint to them saying it is the 2nd drive that you receive that is going bad from them.
they may send you a different model or similar model.
Is it the external or intenal drive. What type of OS?. What are you trying to do (install OS over it?) Is this the only drive in the system? What is the manufacturer of the hd and its type number serial number etc?
Please describe in a detail manner to help you out.
the problem is the controler og the drive wich is: Marvell, 88i6745-TFJ1, internal EEPROM:
- this chip is used in Western Digital's Tornado family, eg WD5000AAKS-xxTMA0, WD5000AAKS-xxYGA0, WD3200AAJS.
- it has a common failure mode that mimics head/media faults, eg clicking, spin-down.found it here: http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/HDD_ICs.txt
No, it's not true, but you will need to buy Partition Magic to clone the smaller drive onto the larger one.
The new MoBo and CPU might give you more trouble though. All of the windows drivers for the old MoBo will be confused when they see all new hardware. In the olden (WinNT) days, this rarely worked. Now in the WinXP SP3/Vista days, you'll probably be just fine.
Could really use a lot more information, but to start you might
check your bios first to see if your computer is recognizing the HD, (XP will try to install just using RAM). Make sure your drive jumpers are set properly. Master, slave or CS?
First enable the hard drive in bios if you havent already .Then if you have windows xp click right on my computer and select manage,it opens up computer mangement, then go to the tab called storage and on the sub menu of storage click disk management . You should see you 2nd/other hard drive (labelled disk 1 at the bottom if it is the second hard drive) make sure its your 2nd HDD ( Look at capacity in properties by clicking right on it) .Click right on the 2nd hard drive and select format press ok when the new window comes up and its finished.
