History - Hard drive had been working okay but refused to load a program. I decided to reformat, but it refuses to reformat.
Message received - Setup was unable to format the partitioon. The disk may be damaged.
Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If the disk is SCSI [[which it is not]] disk, make sure your SCSI are properly terminated. Consult your computer manual or SCSI adapter documentation for more information.
You must select a different partition for Windows 2000. To continue press enter.
This is nonsense as there is of course only one partition.
I have tried - (1) formating the disk by making it a slave and this was done successfully as checked out by pasting items to it. (2) I have tried different jumper settings [[as shipped, master, and single]] but still the same response. (3) I have used a disk check program and it found no problems.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS?
