Some how when i transferd my 4.2 gig hard drive to another PC.
i made it a primary master ,but did not have the jumpers on rite.
it would no longer detect the drive in LBA mode only normal.
proceeded with creating the partitions and formating.
It would format OK but when it came time to install windows.
Scandisk would warn about the LBA mode portion.
Proceeded letting scandisk try and repair.
now having realized that jumpers were the problem and the hard drive is being detected as LBA.
I am having a very hard time trying to creat and format the drive now.
I fear i may have damaged the FAT or created anothe MBR
The manufacturer (Fujitsu) do not have a low level format utiity.
They claim this must be done at there warehouse?

Lokking for one anyhow, figured maybe somewhere out there may created or found one that will do the job.
thank you
