Hard drive inaccessible to format
I am having problems accessing an IDE 60 gig Maxtor hard drive.
This hard drive has most recently been used in a Mac machine that was running as a file server for our network. I am attempting to switch it over to a PC and having problems. I copied the data off of it taht I needed, and then I used the Mac OS (I think it's X) to format the drive. It gave me an option of MS-DOS format, so I used that.
However, when I plug it into the PC, the bios doesn't see the drive there at all, no matter what I do. If I boot to a floppy and try to run fdisk, etc, no drive is recognized.
The Mac can still see the drive if I put it in that machine. I also have added it to my PC. My Windows 2000 OS sees the drive. However, Partition Magic can't format it, it says it is "Bad" and I think says there's a problem wtih the master boot record. None of my disk utiliies seem to be able to prep the drive. Also, if I boot to a floppy from my computer and try to format it, it also is not recognized.
Anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem? Thanks.
