One day I log into my several year old Win 2000 to find this message when my computer tried to check the hard drives: Corrupt master file table. CHKDSK aborted. When I try to access the drive it says: f drive is inaccessible. Error performing inpage operation. So this is keeping me from accessing any of the files on the drive.

My f: drive is a 30 giga byte Maxtor that was purchased about a year ago. The drive currently says that capacity is 0. I have absolutely no clue what could be wrong with and have tried many things. I ve scanned for viruses numerous times and already tried reformatting the drive. However, when I reformatted the drive it just said that windows was unable to complete the format.

Any clue as to what could be wrong or how to fix it, or should I just buy a new one?

The drive may have simply died, I'd test it on another system to be sure...

hey name its possible that the hdd is dead. one thing you can do though is to download the low-level format software from website of your hdd manufacturer and perform a low-level format and see if that brings back life to the hdd. hmmm.....its possible that hdd is dead and you need to purchase a new one.
