Re: Harddisk Problem...
I had a problem with a new Maxtor SATA/IDE 320Gb HDD, and it had to be returned to the shop, as it failed after a couple of days, after I had moved my music collection onto it!! There were no error messages as it failed to be detected. The quality now-a-days seems to be terrible.
Are there no other error messages, yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager? What do you mean by "bad shape"??
