Advanced format seems to be for Vista or Win 7 not XP You would need to reformat the drive.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the reply, bean. Been talking with the peolpe from Western Digital and also Gigabyte. Seems that after trouble shooting with techs from the both of them, they both came up with the same conclusion: bad drive. Really upsetting for me since this drive had been RMA’d once already with New Egg (first drive did the same thing and I requested another one). A rare as it may be, they both seem to have arrived DOA. Talked with customer service at New Egg, and this time am requesting a refund(checked feedbacks, and some one was going for the third try). Thought WD drives would be reliable, but they’re also made by man… Still in need of a WORKING drive. Suggestions?
