so i downloaded the western digital disk diagnostic, and it read the hard drive i set up the partitions and everything was ready to go.. so i hit ok. then it told me to reboot so i did, and nothing happened. i tried to go back and re-do it and now it wont even read the frickin drive. no drive is shown
i dont know what writing zeros to the drive means, and if i did i would do it except... MY COMPUTER WONT READ THE DRIVE. IT DOESNT SHOW UP IN BIOS OR ANYTHING. ive tried connecting it with different cables and everything, everything is set up right but the **** thing does not read. i can hear it spin up when power goes on. it read it fine up until i tried to format it with the Western Digital Diagnostic program, now the whole **** thing doesnt work. PLEASE HELP MY **** COMPUTER HAS BEEN DOWN FOR 4 WEEKS NOW. IM STARTING TO LOSE IT
the one ide channel is set up with the 60gig as primary and thats it. the other channel is set up with a cd-rom as primary and thats it. im just trying to get one thing to work at a time here. and yea they are jumpered right, i double checked.
