Force Series 3 can not format at windows install 0x80070057


Recommended Posts

Hi there


I have purchased 2 - Force Series 3 serial is 112400301 and installed on a Samsung rc520 laptop. at windows install after selecting the unpatitioned SSD and click next after 3 4 seconds i get the message hdd can not be formatted 0x80070057


i have replaced the old hdd that came with the laptop and it works perfect so i guess that the ssd can not emulate properly the old hardisk and it is not see the same by windows.


i am not sure what to do as i have 2 ssd same model .. yes i know i've spent some money on some garbage plastic for the moment.


i hope someone has the right idea on how to get this fixed or i have to return both ssd back


all suggestions welcomed, as i have consumed all my ideas... :)


thank you in advance

also i wanna say that the OS installed is win 7 genuine 64 bit home premium


i am trying right now to use diskpart and format it with :: format fs=ntfs

and for 1 percent it takes about over 3 minutes, i am not sure if that is right... for a ssd to format slower then a standard old hdd....


disk part stopped at 4% for the last 30 minutes....
