my new Hitachi 2TB HDD won't format on my W7 64bit machine. Quick format fails, slow format hangs.
Any ideas?

Try swapping cables and using a different SATA port to rule out cable or port problems.

Use a program like "DiskCheckup" to check the SMART data for the drive to see if any errors are being reported.
