Format the drive from Command Prompt, if possible.
Else u delete the partition using partition Manager.
If it is not working even after thet, then you have to Delete by using XP cd...and delete the partition

hi all,i just had the same problem, heres how i fixed it.
in bios, check you settings
if using ide and sata, enable combo cable select
check motherboard compatability 1.5gps or 3.0 gbs
if 1.5 insert jumper on back of HDD
check now in BIOS to see if HDD seen.
now boot windows, open control panel, administrative tools, computer managemant, disc management and select drive, it may need to be formatted.

if you can hear the clicking sound then there is nothing a normal person can do.
unless you have a spare HDD open it and replce the platter. but it is very risky
if you need the data in it badly, take it to the nearest service centre of samsung. they will recover your data within 1 month. but you will have to pay for every MB they recover.

When you formatted the drive for the Mac, you probably used the HFS format. Windows can only read NTFS or FAT formatted drives. You will need to reformat your external drive again. If you use a FAT32 format, all computers will be able to read the drive (Windows, UNIX and Mac - anyway). Note: the FAT32 option does limit the number of files in each directory and the maximum file size.
First back up any files that you have put on the external drive to another disc (your computer's hard disc, for example).
If you are using the M2 external disc for Time Machine backups, you should partition the drive into two sections. Format one to the FAT32 and the other to HFS.
The Disc Utility in OSX can repartition the drive and reformat it. However, sometimes it doesn't correctly format the new partitions. You may need to do some extra step, see http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html for one set of reformatting steps. In Windows, there is a similar utitily in the Disk Management Control Panel. (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Create and format hard disk partitions (Windows 7)) You can only format the disc to FAT or NTFS with the Windows utility.
Some third-party software is available for changing the partitions on a hard drive formatted for Windows use without losing the data on the disc. I do not know if similar programs exist for OSX.
Some versions of Unix have gparted which will also repartion and reformat a hard disc but can't keep the original data on the drive. (I've used the Windows and Unix partition managers, including Paragon Partition Manager which let me keep my original Windows data on the drive.)
I hope this helps.
