Laptop Hard Drive

  belvue 07:33 08 Apr 2006

I recently purchased a 2nd user 30gb hitachi travelmaster 2.5" hard disk,which was working OK,but material on it was not to my liking(?) so
i decided to use Killdisk Pro Ver3.1 to sanitize it.It carried out a 3 run cleansing programme up to about 90% of the 3rd run.
I have since been unable to either F Disk it or even get my Laptop to recognise it-keeps throwing up "primary hard disk drive 0 not found"
can anyone please help me in this problem - thanks in anticipation.

Take a look in the BIOS and see if it is recognised.

Hitachi may have a low level format utility avialable for it that may help.

thanks for that Diodorus Siculus,but BIOS does not recognise Hard Disk so am unable to use any
low format utilities - maybe the hard disk has a partition that i cannot access,any ideas lads?

Sounds like you may have killed it :-(

But I'm no expert so hopefully someone else will come up with a solution.
