good day.!

I am having problem with my Hitachi HDD..Every time i format it, the format session will not complete because of bad sectors on it.Is there any other way to bypass/repair this bad sectors via a bootable dos base software or in any other way.?

Thank you for giving time.

Hello,

Try using chkdsk at command prompt. Try typing chkdsk volume:/r were volume is the drive letter, the /r should scan for bad sectors and fix them.

- Let us know how it goes.

I cant even use the cdrom to format it. I am using my usb stick(windows xp usb stick edition) for formatting. but it stops right there. If i use the chkdsk /r which would i start please..
