I have a WD20EURS-73TLHY0 2TB drive that a pulled from a SpaceMonkey.com. I hated that service so I decided to cancel my subscription and use the bare drive instead.
The problem is that I can’t format the drive. It always gives an I/O error. I tried on Windows and on Ubuntu (see pictures below). On Windows I used diskpart and saw that the drive has a null DISKID, which seems weird. Now I’m thinking that it has some sort of special firmware made by SpaceMonkey, is that possible?
Any ideas on how to salvage this drive?
