I have a Samsung S2 Portable Drive. Plugged it into my PC. ALthough it appeared as drive G: in My Computer, when I tried to open it, WIndows says it needs to be formatted. When I tried formatting it, Windows said it could not be formatted. I downloaded the formatting utility on Samsung's website. The utility said the drive could not be formatted either. What can i do? Help please!

check if Samsung has a disk-utility and check the status of your drive. It sounds like you have a drive issue.
