How do I format WDD HDD? It comes up in disk part and disk manager, but it tells me it is write protected. It was working fine a few hours ago, after searching online to no avail I come here.


If the Western Digital tools tell you that there are too many bad sectors then it is possible that your drive is failing and will need to be replaced.

You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

I stopped the formating of my hard drive and then try to reinstall windows xp, the set up stays at 27% at copying driver.cab. it been more then hour it running.


Hello,
You may have to try formatting your HDD again. If you have bad sectors on the hard drive, an incomplete format will not be able to flag back sectors so your windows install might be trying to copy to a bad location on the HDD. (speculation) your HDD may have no bad sectors, but this is one example of what could happen with an incomplete format.
You might also have a dirty install CD. take the CD out and look at it. If it is full of finger marks you might want to clean it and try again.

Remove the bad sector from samsung sp0411n


Although A format could help it sounds more like you have some bad sectors on the harddrive.

Right click on the drive, select properties, then select the tools menu and initiate a disk check. it will give you an option screen before it proceeds, select the option to scan for a recover bad sectors/clusters. This will write off and mark the bad sectors so they will not be used again. If the problem comes back again soon then your palette media is failing and you should replace the drive.

Good luck and let us know how you make out,

I cant install any operating system in a desktop Gateway


you cannot install an operating system on an hdd on one system and just plug it in to another computer, as windows installs itself according to the specs of the machine you install it to. Have you tried plugging it in to a the second IDE slot? also check your jumper make sure that it is set to master

Seagate sata hdd error


Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

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.

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD


When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
