Default Unable to use low level format utility

i m using 33GB maxtor Hard Drive. i was getting problem with that coz i was not able to run it and not able to format any drive (c.d.e.f). So i tried to do a low level format with MAXDIAG(maxtor LLF utility). at the main interface i select the drive and select read scan and it successfully read the haddrive. but when i try to select write scan i get error msg

" diagnostic system reported the following error code : F12SY2"

some one suggested me to use powermax 4.23.i used that utility but when i try to select low level format i got the error msg
"diagnostic code : cba3936a"
