  1. I am having a problem with one of my hard drives. It worked fine and now it doesn't I started screwing around with different tools and I just wan to wipe it and restart. It is a sata maxtor drive with nothing on it. I have two eide hard drives that work fine. I have unplugged it and uninstalled it just to have windows do pnp. I have gone under disk management and it is not there. However under my computer it is when I check the properties it says raw under disk format. So I run the maxblast thing and partition it nfts and nothing happens.

    It has a drive letter. I tried the Windows format and another odd thing. It is always under safely remove hardware on my taskbar.
