I bought an external hard drive enclosure today and plugged in a Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1tb hdd.
The thing worked and I could access it and see some files that were on it. I tried to transfer some files onto it, and it didn't work, so I just tried formatting it, left it, and windows said that it could not be formatted.
Whenever I plug it back in, it says that the hard drive cannot be used until it is formatted. I tried the conventional method of formatting, disk management in 'my computer' and cmd disk check, but none worked. I don't have the means to connect the hard drive directly to a motherboard.
Can someone please suggest a solution, on how I can format this thing?
"The volume does not contain a recognized file system"
"The sytem must be formatted"
"Windows could not format..."
