Hi,

I received a Lacie external HD. There was currently data on it, so I went to disk utility to wipe it, It started to do it, but it stopped and said imput/output error, and couldn't complete. Now I can't partition or anything. Disk Utility does see the HD, but I can't format and create a volume. I even tried zero all data, but didn't work. Does anyone know what I can do about this? Is there another program you recommend that can do the job. The drive is almost new, so it can't be bad yet. Any suggestions? Thank You


Chris

Actually, it could be. There's no telling when hard drives are going to fail, and most likely this one shipped with a defect.

I'd try getting it replaced if you're already having issues and it's still fairly new.


I once had a customer buy a LaCie drive from us and the drive head failed after 3 days of use. We swapped it straight away, but he lost about 30Gigs of data unfortunately.
