    First you have to clarify which HDD you using (SATA/PATA) ? And what is your OS?

Can not format my samsung hard drive with DOS command and Disk Genius and lost 49 GB capacity. What can I do?


You may have the hard drive partitioned into two or more partitions.
Delete all the partitions and create a single partition and then format this single partition on the hard drive.

Ples solve the problem


This occurs due to wrong or incomplete format to your drive. you should get it partitioned again using the DM (Disk Manager). its a DOS based program simple to work with. It starts a wizard for the user to get his drive partitioned.

Unable to Format WesternDigital USB Hard Disk


Are you formatting a new disk or an existing one? Keep in mind that the rest of us do not know all the details that you know unless you tell us & thus it will take much longer to resolve your issue.
You said "after you tried it with XP CD". Dont know what you mean. What program did you use the first time & what steps did you do?

Seagate 160 gb capacity problem


the harddrive size is in another measurement system and the actual size of the drive is exactly what you are seeing 152.

here you can see how my disks show
894a905.jpg 160GB disk - 152,66GB
1000GB disk - 931.51GB

that is correct.

Get the hard drive replaced. It was probably damaged during shipping.
