    Try formating it. If it does not help ask for a replacement.


    well..i cant do anything about it..formating or partition coz i cant initialize it..my pc cant detect it and the only way to see the hard disk is in device manager which giving me the 'data error cyclic redundancy check'.

    guess youre right.. the 'data error cyclic redundancy check' is a cancer right? no solution for this? and i read some topic that it means that your device is giving in. like you have to buy a replacement as soon as possible so i guess its the same in my situation in a way.
