If the camera refuses to format the drive, it may be bad. You could take it out of the camera and install it in a laptop or pc, and try to format it there.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: formating hard disk

IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

Remove the HDD from the Bay, and install it in a PC, as an extra drive, then see if you can access it that way just to get all you data!

SOURCE: how to format IDE hard drive?

This drive is an IDE drive. The jumpers can be set on it to make it a slave.

Once set as a slave, you can identify the drive letter given to this drive and format it either at a command prompt: C:> format [drive:] /s (to make it bootable) or no /s to just format it.- OR within Windows: right click on the drive letter and select format.

M Brand new DVR doesn't recognize its SATA hard disk? I have confirmed there is power on Hard disk. when it was not working. I format it by using windows 7 and reinstall it . what the reason?


is this the hard drive you recieved with the DVR? it is possible that the HDD is set up in the wrong format. windows sets up your HDD in a NTFS format which is compatible with most DVR's but i know there are some EverFocus units that read the HDD in a diffrent format. if this is the case you need too check in your owners manual in the HDD section, it should tell you what format it records onto, then place the HDD in your PC and reformat it to the right one.

When formatting a card for a camera, it's important to make sure to format using the menu settings on the camera itself and not from a computer. This guarantees that the card will be the exact format that the camera requires in order to record images and videos.
In the Home Menu of the camera, navigate to "Manage Media" and select "Media Format". Choose "HDD", and this will properly format the internal hard drive of the camera.

HDD Error!


Take it to a camera store or to a Best Buy store and see if the hard drive has a problem with it such as a bent recording head.

Did the hard drive format completely?

HDD wont get formatted


Hi, maybe the easiest way for you to format this drive would be if you could attach it as a secondary drive in a pc that is currently working and then try formatting it in the desired format from within windows. Windows will recognize a drive it only needs to format it in order to access it for data storage. You may need to change the jumper setting to slave on the HDD before you plug it in.

If you need any help with this just let me know.

Hard disk failure


Hi, assuming the hdd won't finish a format, it is possible that some sectors are damaged. If you still want to try and use the hdd even with these defects, you can try and partition the hdd. Guesstimate at what point the hdd stops responding and really guess where the defects end. With this info, partition the hdd into 3 with the middle containing the defective sectors. Format only the first and third partitions. For simplicity, Win98 might be easier to work with rather than XP. Hope this be of some help. Do post again and let us know how things turn up.
