: Hi! There are a lot of bad sectors on my hard disk, and I cannot fix them with scandisk. (Is there another way to fix this problem?) I deleted and re-created the partition with FDisk and I used format to format my hard disk. BUT the format cannot go through, It said "Not ready" and "terminated". I guess I should do a low level format? Can anyone tell me know how to do it or is there another way to deal this problem? I was told there was a tool called "partition magic" that can do it...

: thank you!
