i just got being they key words, is it new or 2nd hand ? if its new RMA looks like a faulty hd to me, i know thats a generalisation but if its not formatting in 2 diff ways seems dodgy to me,
have you tried with a win XP disk so that the drive is completely offline while doing it ?
or try acronis disk creator that is the BEST ever program i have used for formatting partition etc, its not free but its easy enough to "find"
