How is the HD formatted? with NTFS or with Fat 32? If it is Fat 32 you can
run spinrite on it and that MIGHT clear up your problems, it's a great
utility. (however it is not free, it's shareware), take a look at
http://www.grc.com/intro.htm he is a good guy and knows allot about drives,
he has some of the best utilities around.

Do you have critical data on the drive? or are you trying to format it so
you can do a clean install? If you are tryiong to format it, have you
deleted the partition, and created a new one using the old Fdisk command?
Fdisk will destroy the data on the drive, but if it will not sucessufully
complete an Fdisk command the drive is toast anyway.....it might complete
the fdisk command and still not format though if there are too many bad
sectors on the drive.
If you could give more particulars on what is going on I will try to help
more......
Hope this helps,
Bitsbucket.
