i own a SAMSUNG SpinPoint P Series SP1614C 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150 Hard Drive. I was changing some partition sizes using partition magic 8.0 when it gave me an error #632 and said that the geometry used was bad and that i would half to use a prog other than p. magic 8.0 or my O.S. to partiton the drive. I tried to use my xp install cd to formate it but that did not work now the entire drive shows up as bad under P.M. 8.0 and i can not use the drive. when i try to formate the drive again it gives me a error #4 witch says bad something or bad geometry
can you please suggest something that will help me solve my problem. ive emailed p.m. tech support about 4 days ago and i have not heard back from them thanks for any help

Welcome to TSF:

As I see it / you have two options ~~ use partition doctor (not free) or wipe drive clean and re-install OS ????
