Solved Blue screen during write-zero, window cant see HDD Tags: Hard Drives Blue Screen Computer Storage Last response: October 31, 2010 12:21 AM in Storage Share Harunatsumi October 30, 2010 11:39:28 PM Hi. 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?

The chances are since you zero wrote it, the HDD is not formatted. Format it through Disk Manager. Share Harunatsumi October 31, 2010 12:15:34 AM Thank you for ur reply.
