Cannot format my WD 1TB external hard drive


The hard disk is having bad sectors on its first 3000 sectors.the bad sectors are caused by degradation of the platter of the hard disk.OR the factory area of the hard disk has certain files called SMART, G -LIST and other log files.Unless one empties those log files with a good tool , one cant format ones hard disk.

Fixing bad sector


Try Hard disk regenerator 2011, boot from cd / dvd and start recovery. It's a good bad sector recovery software. If you have physical bad sectors then it will not possible to recover. If it is logical then this tool can help you. search google for the software, make bootable cd or dvd and start under dos.

My computer burned 2 hdd


After i Read your Explaination,i really sure if the Problem is at your Computer POWER SUPPLY.
Change your Power Supply to Higher Watt.
i Recomended to you to Using SIMBADA Power Supply ATX.
and to Fix your HDD bad Sector,Try to use LLF (Low Level Format).
LLF will destroy all data and Partition.So after you Format using LLF,you need to make a New partition at your HDD.
LLF is Working for me to Fix Bad Sector in a So many times.

Hard disk


if you are installing a dos based system thn dos formatting is very good

if you are going to use xp then make boot option in setup as bootable from cd rom
put a win xp setup cd in the cdrom drive
it will boot up saying press any key to continue , and follow the scren instructions
the whole process is that simple a hd can be formatted till bad sectors are not shown up upto 8 %. more thna 8& bad sectors cannot load windows, however dos can still be loaded and so also win me so it doesnot affect the hd
what affects is the jerks and voltage supply variations on the har d disk and some bad virus infections and the temperature the hd has ... always leep hd at a tem p lower than 37 degres c
use a fan to achieve this a 12 volt small fan mounted on the hd .

Bad sector


I was looking on http:// freeware arena.com and noticed a download that claims to be able to recover data from almost anything.
Virus?? Have you checked?
HDD's tend to go bad as you are describing, "bad sectors" ever increasing, even after format more turn up. Not good. New disk required?
