Let me introduce myself…I have 20 years experience with PCs, have A+ and Network+
that said here is my situtation:
I have purchased a WD Green Caivar WD20EADS 2.0 TB but Windows cannot format it. I also have a Studio My Book External Drive and I was able to format it without a problem. I have tried to format in Windows XP & Windows 7…Windows XP says “Windows cannot complete format” and in Windows 7 format just hangs after 54% complete. WDC said to RMA the drive, I have done so …4 times! They don’t seem to know how to solve this problem. Clearly this cannot be the same problem with 4 different drives but no one can tell me what I maybe doing incorrectly.
If anyone had had any remotely similar problem please help.
