HDD Problem

4 posts in this topic

i am havin a unique problem with my HDD.... when i try to scan it for errors it displays

"file in sector **** is unreadable"

and after that some bad sectors are marked.

thru partition magic it displays CRC error

but if i format the HDD no badsectors or errors are detected then. the last month i formatted my hdd more then 3 time in a day and even exchanged my copy of xp coz i thought it might be the culprit..... but today it again detected the 20 kb badsector....

first i thought it might be virus but none detected... plz help as soon as possible :(

I would say it is indeed bad sectors, reason for them not showing after format is because they're not used so no scan. When they get to be used you get the error. Should be no biggie though, only 20kb :D
