#101282 - Thanks
Responding to: Russell Bull's previous message
The drives normally have servo tracks or servo information embedded in the formatting. Once this is lost, the drive can't calibrate itself.

very nice explanation of the problem.thanks russell
Its normally more than just reformatting the boot track, and there is probably software that will do it through the PC, but the drive is obviously reporting that it has problems, so the BIOS is not recognising it.

I'm expecting the same situation Exactly.Maxtor does ave a program Called "PowerMax" which is used to 'configure' their HDD's . maybe it could fix the problem !.unfortunately i wasn't able to use it because of the floppy drive problems.
my problem is to find those softwares name .
Beyond that, I'd be facing towards Mecca. [/qutoe]

Nice try,i'm sure it doesn't make it for me(not to make it religious)
