This will be hard to explain... I own a sharp HDD/DVD recorder. The HDD died a few days ago. After some research I found out you can swap the hdd drives. I formatted a HDD to fat 32. Put it inside and the thing booted. According to sharp I have to perform HDD aging, in order to set the HDD-ID. During these steps I screwed up. The manual says when in error replace HDD and start over. I am trying to get acces to the HDD on my PC again in order to reformat, but it seems the HDD recorder has written it's own format. As a result the drive is'nt recognized anymore Are there any windows based tools to get acces to this drive to do a format? OR can I throw this drive to the bin?
