  2. Have you tried rebooting? I had a glitch on a USB drive that set it into RAW mode. Unplugging and replugging the drive didn't solve the problem, but rebooting did.
  3. how do i reboot it ?!!
  4. try inserting that hardisk and go to manage option and disk management.....then delete that drive once and again try creating a new one.....

    OR ELSE dowload unlocker http://www.filehippo.com/download_unlocker/

    Click "Start" and select "Shutdown". After the computer shuts down, turn it on again.
