Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check) during hard drive format?

Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check) during hard drive format?

I received a new HDD from my uncle, RAW file system. Tried CHKDSK, but it didn't work because of the RAW file system.

"If you can't successfully format the drive, the likelihood of it being a bad (failed) HDD is pretty high.

To be totally sure, I'd try formatting it on another PC -- either by hooking it up via SATA directly or using a USB enclosure."

If you happen to be formatting your SD card or HDD via a USB extension cable or a USB hub, this error can present itself: be sure the device you are formatting is plugged directly into the computer when formatting.
