    How is the HD formatted? with NTFS or with Fat 32? If it is Fat 32 you can
    run spinrite on it and that MIGHT clear up your problems, it's a great
    utility. (however it is not free, it's shareware), take a look at
    http://www.grc.com/intro.htm he is a good guy and knows allot about drives,
    he has some of the best utilities around.

    Do you have critical data on the drive? or are you trying to format it so
    you can do a clean install? If you are tryiong to format it, have you
    deleted the partition, and created a new one using the old Fdisk command?
    Fdisk will destroy the data on the drive, but if it will not sucessufully
    complete an Fdisk command the drive is toast anyway.....it might complete
    the fdisk command and still not format though if there are too many bad
    sectors on the drive.
    If you could give more particulars on what is going on I will try to help
    Hope this helps,
