External HD problem.
Just got a 1 TB external hd manufactured by Western Digital (to be used as an external drive for storage).
My problem is that I cannot initialize it as either MBR or GTP, it simply says,
"The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error."
I have looked at my BIOS settings, and all seem to be good. ie. USB 2, I/O auto, etc.
I tried hooking it up to another computer that is running XP Pro 32-bit, and it did not recognize or register in the Disk Management of XP. So, I wasn't able to initialize and Format it using XP.
My Windows 7 Home Prem. 64-bit, recognizes the external hard drive, but I can't initialize or Format it.
