I am not sure if this is your primary disk or a slave drive. In Windows, you can repair the drive with ckdisk and follow all instructions. If this is a new drive without any operating system then your Windows cd will have an option to fix any bad sectors. If you need further help or want to clarify anything, please let me know. I will help you get it going one way or another.

My PS3 display's the following message when i turn it on..."The hard disk's database will be rebuilt" - When i click 'ok' it displays "Rebuilding the database, do not turn off the system." - Immediately...


If the hard drive is hanging on the format the drive table may have just gottten corrupted. This can happen with a computer but the operating system can fix this usually. The link below will take you through connecting the hard drive to your computer and using it to format the drive. If the computer hangs on the format and/or you still have trouble with the drive then there is something wrong with the drive and you will have to replace it.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I have intel dg31 motherboard and sumsung hard disk. it show agian agian system 32 error. how to solve it. so it is hard disk problem or motherboar.

Your hard drive is set for master. Do you have other device connected? It shows in the BIOS? This error happen when trying to re format. You need to re format with a copy that will do it. I think you format isn't completely formatting.

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.
