Windows 7: seagate 250 GB SATA write-protected problem

20 Jul 2012   #11

Windows Ultimate 32-Bit, Windows Enterprise 32-bit

When I do CHKDSK /F it check the DVD that's way it say write protected
i mean i should be more specific like CHKDSK D: /f ... to scan D partition... am I right ?
If that correct ... that mean I’m back to windows expanding files 0% error
Oh 2 days and I learnt a lot from this experiment

Download Seatools for DOS, burn the bootable ISO to a CD (you can also create a bootable pendrive) and run it to check/repair your drive.

Read the Getting Started page and the tutorials/guide.

SeaTools | Seagate (It also tells you how to lowlevel format your Seagate drive and when you need to do it.)

To create your bootable Seatools for DOS pendrive, you may use Rufus v1.2.0 Rufus - Create bootable USB drives
