Help! Can't format a RAW HDD
Hey guys, my hitachi 500gb hard drive has for some reason become RAW and I can't format it under windows. It is only a couple of months old. chkdsk won't work as the disk management section in windows 7 freezes when this drive is plugged in. I don't need to recover anything on it, I just want to format it!
Any help would be much appreciated
p.s i can't afford to pay for any software so freeware only please! :-)
