Formatting problems with Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5 TB drives

Does anyone know if there are special instructions to follow for formatting a HHD that is larger than 1 TB? I formatted both my drives and they both stopped at 73%. Now I can only make a partition for 1000 GB, but the rest of the 400 GB can't be formatted. Is it the drive or is it something else? Thanks.

  1. What operating system are you running?
  2. xp professional 32
  3. what service pack? there was an expansion to the max HD size with SP 1 and 2 if I remember correctly.

    What kind of error does it give you at 73%?
