Hi again! Well the hard drive that my grandpa gave me is not working. I tried to reformat the drive but i cant do it The hard drive is a sata Western Digital WD3200JD which has 320gb of space and a 8mb buffer. This drive was in a gateway computer that my grandpa had. The computer was struck by lightning, but the hard drive still works. He gave it to me and i installed it into my computer, hooked everything up fine, turned on the computer, entered into bios and it can see the drive. Then i stick my Windows XP cd into my cd drive and boot up but the only option i get is a recovery feature from gateway!!?? I dont have any more ideas. Please can anyone help me reformat this drive??!!
