Hard Drive Integrity OK cant Format.

  Ex plorer 12:41 27 Nov 05

Hi I am puzzled over two hard drives that I have the integrity checks out fast and at 100%
Formatting dose not.
When I start to format one drive will format 53% and then starts trying to recover allocation unit.
The other drive only gets to 8% before trying to recover allocation unit. I have tried to use Scandisk after tools are loaded at DOS but get the message Scandisk cannot scan drive C. To see if Scandisk would work I scanned A drive with no problem.

A few more details please

PC specs and opertaing system?

Are you trying to format an external drive?

Have you tried Fdisk them and delete the partitons then format?

If you get stuck and look at the hard drives manufacturers website you should be able to download all sorts of test and format tools such as Maxblast for Maxtor drives.
