Default Can't format Reator R60

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for the help.

I have this Reactor series R60. I started getting Windows error status message 0x00000e. I Googled how to solve this, tried some suggestions, and nothing worked.

I finally reinstalled my Windows installation with Acronis, and within a few days, the same error message was appearing.

I have tried Parted Magic to wipe the drive and Gparted, Acronis, and Windows 7 to try and format the drive. The drive was not recognized by GParted when connected via USB, and Parted Magic was also unsuccessful. Windows built in format tool just got stuck.

Any advice to save this drive? I have everything backed up, I just don't want to chuck the drive.

I am trying to do this via a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit machine, Intel 2600K.

Plug the drive into the computer via SATA data and power cables instead of USB and try secure erasing it.

Have you tried a different SATA data cable and motherboard port?

Yes, I tried via SATA also. No luck. It wants to format via Windows built in format tool, but never completes.

It sounds like the drive may be faulty.

I don't think there is much you can do to save the drive.
