SOURCE: How to format the LaCie 500GB d2 Quadra for Windows XP??

This way it should work...
Connect your drive to the computer...
Go to: Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer management.
A new window will appear...
Select Storage > Disk management on the left of the window.
Now you will see the different drives that are connected or part of your system.
One of the drives listed there is your LaCie, i think you'll recognize it by name...
Right-click on it, and select 'format'
In the new window, select the new volume label (as you like it), the file system (use NTFS), and set allocation unit size to default.
Make sure 'Perform a quick format' is not checked...

Then click OK. Your drive will be formatted now... Don't interrupt the process

SOURCE: Formatting 500gb hard drive on PS3 Stuck on 99%

Well, at this point, interrupting the format process, normally a really dangerous thing to do, may be your only option, given the need to power
down the unit, for any further maintenance.

This is the kind of thing for which the reset button was made, but if reset,
given the operation of formatting a startup disk, your system may not restart.

If you have the original installation disks, be prepared to reinstall after
another attempt at formatting that which is probably a corrupt disk by now.

If you choose to attempt another format, please be careful to write down
the progress points [10% 20% 30%, etc.] for the use of the service personnel so that some estimation of the location on the disk of any damage can be estimated.

SOURCE: Ps3 not formating 500gb internal new hard drive?

Hi Eric,

First you will need to connect the hard drive to your computer or a friends, either using a hard drive enclosure or cable

Then you need to format the drive into fat32 format (full format recommended , not quick format)

Then put it back into your ps3 and have a usb flash drive with the latest ps3 software loaded

then you will be able to format the drive and load the ps3 os

SOURCE: Hard Drive unformatted Deleting Errow

you need to clear the cache. You can call microsoft at 1-800-4myxbox, and they will guide you through the process. It may take 10-15 minutes to do but you have probably spent more time than that being frustrated.

I have a 453 GB Lap Top, 500GB Hitachi will not back, says no more space, I was told to delete all info on 500GB and do new back up, How do I delete info from 500GB?


Open up Windows Explorer (the file manager).

Right-click on the 500GB drive (drive D: or whatever it is) then click Format.

If it says the drive is in use, make sure you close all other Windows Explorer and Command Prompt windows and try again (worst case, reboot then try again).
