Hi,

I have a samsung 60gb HD. I had w2k on it, I then replaced it with a 80gb HD.I then used the 60gb as an external drive. I started to format the 60gb drive using w2k and it got to about 57% and froze. I left it for about an hour with no change. I then stopped it. it now show only 31.4gb any Ideas.

Regards

Ian

you may have fried part of the drive. were you earthed when you removed the drive? if not, then a static charge may have blasted part of the drivebeyond this, i can't think of any other reason beyond this at present
