Password is for the computer, not the hard drive. Get a Linux LiveCD and reformat the drive.

SOURCE: WD Scorpio Black 320GB SATA drive

Halarious, I had the same problem yet I used norton ghost. At least you still show 160 gb. Mine went all the way to 60 gb. Here is what I had to do to reclaim the lost. I downloaded something called "Magic Boot Disk" It gave me the whole 320 back yet have not found good cloning software yet. Magic Boot Disc is freeware avaliable at http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/ Good luck cloning

SOURCE: Installed a 250GB WD Scorpio and it shows as a 130GB drive

make sure the laptop will handle a drive bigger than 130 gig. if not make two partitions when you set it up, bios wont see it but usually windows will. also, sometimes ive found that if i delete the partition a few times it eventually reads right. dont know why but have done it that way several times. you can also download a diskmanager program from thier website which makes an overlay if your bios wont support a 250.

SOURCE: XP, Vista and Win7 recognize

You'll need to check and see if the disk is formatted and recognized as a logical disk. To do this, Go to Start, and locate the Run option, and type in diskmgmt.msc or you can go to My Computer, right-click it and select "Manage" from the popup menu. Then, at the bottom of the list to the left, you'll see the Disk Management submenu.
Once you're in the Disk Management applet, click on the WD from the list of available hard drives from the list, and see if the partition is recognized as formated. If it's not formated you may need to format it. If the disk is recognized as RAW disk, then you'll need to first create an extended partition and then format it with NTFS file system. REMEMBER, if you can access the drive from another computer and it's recognized properly in Explorer, then formating it will erase all data on the disk. But if you never used it before (i.e you dont have any data on it) then you can go ahead with the formatting, which should solve your problem if it's a software issue.
If you heard your disk clicking for a while in the past, and you had problems with it: slow reading of files, sluggish in copying files etc. then your hard drive may be mechanically failing and in this case there's nothing you can do to save it. If this is the case and you still have warranty, return the disk to where you bought it from, and ask for a replacement.

If this was informative and helpful please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

Sounds like your goose is cooked. Probably mechanical damage to drive internals. There's places you can send it to that can do some things beyond what you can do at home, but they're really, really expensive.

You shouldn't have any problems. The computer uses SATA drives and the drive is SATA and is also a 2.5" laptop HDD. Make sure that you have a way to install an OS , etc

No doubt Windows install is using the SMART capabilities of the drive. SMART is reporting the drive is not suitable for boot drive use. Buy a new drive.

My Western Digital will not appear on my mac. I can't see it on my Dell either. How can I find it to format it?


If it's brand new, you probably need to initialize it. On your Windows PC (as I'm not familiar with mac's) right click on "My Computer" or "Computer" depending on what version of Win you use. Then click manage, and find "Disk Management" on the left side. If you see any drives that aren't typically there, right click on it. One of the options should be to initialize the disk. Hopefully this helps!
