Windows 7: Good freeware utility to wipe laptop HDD

Win-7 Prof 64bit
 
 

Attached my internal WD HDD to another PC (running Win-7 64-bit) via a USB to IDE/SATA connector.

Ran CCleaner but keep getting CRC - data error cyclic redundancy check.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks,

Try and see if the HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool can wipe it successfully.
