Blue screen during write-zero, window cant see HDD
Oct 30, 2010, 11:39 PM
From the thread below, I try to check bad sector problem on my secondary hdd.
I am using Window Vista.
Half way through Zero-fill using Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic, my com suddenly got blue-screen. *from unrelated network card driver problem)
Now, when i look at my computer i cant see the 2nd HDD.
I can still interact with it through Western Digitial Data lifeguard, and computer still detect it when i look for it under device manager.
I already unplug the HDD, shutdown, boot up , shutdown, and plug HDD back on, but i still cant see it in my computer.
What should i do?

^ Open up Disk Management (Run>compmgmt.msc. Then go to Disk Management). The chances are since you zero wrote it, the HDD is not formatted. Format it through Disk Manager.
