Hey all, i read somewhere a guy collected HD's that were unwanted due to 'bad sectors' etc. Then he would run a Zero-fill utility that would low-level format the drive and place '0'-s on all sectors. This would actually get rid of any bad sectors, and the drive would become usable again.... Is this true? I have a Seagate Barracuda that i've been experiencing a lot of bad sectors (crc-errors in ntfs-files, delayed-write failed errors, also sometimes the drive disappearing in windows) and i have reformatted twice now, but these problems keep re-appearing. I've downloaded a manufacturer's utility to "Zero-Fill" the drive (Seagate DiskWizard Starter Edition, 2 floppy disks) but when i choose that option from the utilities menu and select the drive, the program "hangs" on 0%. it recognizes the drive as "BIOS - ST380013AS" (or something like that) any ideas? many thanks.
