SSD format problem. Help please.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello.

Having problems with 2 new Crucial M4 SSD's.

I can't install or open or format either of them.

Here are some screen shots.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Change the drive letter? Also you can try this instead for both the SSD's.
  1. Open cmd
  2. Click "Command Prompt"
  3. Type diskpart to load DiskPart
  4. Type list disk
  5. Type select disk 0 (or whichever number your SSD gets)
  6. If you want to be sure you have the right one selected, then type list partition.
  7. Once you know you have the right drive selected, type clean.
  8. Type create partition primary align=1024
  9. Type format quick fs=ntfs
  10. It will appear like it's going to take forever, but then like 5-10 seconds later, it suddenly finishes, jumping straight from 0% to 100%.
  11. Type active
  12. Type list partition to see your creation.
  13. Type exit
  14. Type exit

Have you tried formatting them using a boot-from-disk utility? Instead of through Windows?

Darwin's Boot and Nuke for example

Alright I did the CMD Disk formatting thing.

But they won't appear in My Computer at all now.

Alright, I tried this, I got upto the "clean" part. and it seems the computer just ****s it's self. Like everything just goes really really slow, I can't change music, can't alt tab, can't open anything, and it seems the diskpart just hangs.

When ever I go to format/clean/partition the new drives, it gives me an error, and it also disappears from My Computer.
