Question about Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 HTS541080G9SA00 80GB 5400rpm 150MBps Serial ATA Serial ATA/150 I... (0A26924FT) Hard Drive
I have a travelstar laptop hd HTS5410 80 gb that has the "physicalbad sectors in the hard disk drive's service area" problem. How do I bypass that area to make the drive usable? It is not currently installed in a laptop but can connect to a machine externally via usb. I may be able to install it in a laptop and use hitachi's drive fitness test software but do not know if it their software will allow me to bypass the bad sectors. What do you reccommend? Thanks.
I would temporarily attach it directly to your laptop and go into recovery console and do a chkdsk /r on that drive
see if that helps, if not then there are things you can do.

I'd take it back right away, sounds like the hard drive is going. There are things you can do to try and fix it, but I'd take it right back and get the seller to fix it. It also could be that the drive has come loose but odds are the hard drive is going. So copy all data that's important to DVD and take it back and have them replace the hard drive.
