I got a Computer with windows 10 and i needed to replace my disk cause it makes strange sounds. So i bougt a purple line wd 2tb disk and go to disk manager make partition and formated it. after that i got the windows error format failed. But i saw correct the disk in Windows but could not open it. I tried the same with slow formating. nothing. After that i used the windows console tool for disk formating but i aborted cause it was running way too long
So i downloaded the wd analysis tool and make a disk analysis. It was running forever. So i decided i got a bad disk…(amazon warehouse)
later bought a new disk (wd 2tb blue) go in disk manager formating and same error. Formating failed. I can see the device letter and everything but cannot acess the device.
What can it be?
I was thinking maybe Sata cable (I used a Sata2 cable i had somewhere)? More doesnt come to my head…
